Areas of Interest
I am eager to collaborate with the faculty in Entomology and throughout the university. It is an impressive group of scientists. This stimulating environment is perfect for developing new ideas and research questions. Finally, the new Bee Research Center presents a unique opportunity to develop a research program that addresses key questions in wild bee ecology. The interest and support for wild bee ecology is truly extraordinary in the state of Minnesota and the University. I can’t imagine a better place to build my research program.
