Former member (Undergraduate Alum)
I am broadly interested in how anthropogenic global change affects plant-insect interactions and what restoration strategies can help conserve these interactions. As an undergraduate (Class of 2020), I did my honors thesis in the Dirzo Lab on oak herbivory at Jasper Ridge. I am now an ecology PhD student in the Harrison Lab at the University of California Davis.
