Research interests: I am broadly interested in questions related to
bee community assembly and the role of restorations in conserving bee
species.

Project: I am currently pursuing questions related to how bee
community composition in both prairie reconstructions and remnants
change as sites become increasingly isolated from other natural
habitats. I am also interested in how species specific floral
specialization might explain bee community structure within
reconstructed prairies along this gradient of isolation.
