I am interested in the field of conservation and disease ecology, and the intersection between these two. Prior to the bee lab, I assisted with vector borne disease research, which sparked an interest in research involving insects. I worked on the MAPP team for 5 months, where I helped with the collection and processing of native bee specimens. This position gave me the opportunity to learn about bees and the research being conducted regarding their conservation. I hope to use the information and skills I have gained to further my career in the field of conservation/entomology.
