I am the research technician for the citizen science project, Minnesota Bee Atlas and the cross-disciplinary project, The Art and Science of Nesting Bees. I am interested in bee nesting biology and nest parasites, forest pollinators - particularly in the forest canopy, climate change policy, and how all these things intersect with ecosystem restoration and management. Before working in the Cariveau native bee lab, I worked for many years designing and planting native plant gardens and I also worked as a naturalist for Minneapolis Parks and Recreation.
