Research Interest: I am interested in how both the landscape and local factors associated with prairie restorations affect patterns of local and spatial diversity in bee communities. Specifically, I am interested in question relating to biotic homogenization due to landscape simplification, as well as factors that limit bee communities in restorations similarity to prairie remnants. I am also interested in working with landmanagers to better communicate pollinator research and learn about restoration research priorities.
