Insects are amazingly diverse and adaptive little critters. They were here long before us and they will be here long after we’re gone.
Why University of Minnesota?
The UMN beelab does incredible research lead by a great advisor and provides a lot of support to the beekeeping industry. Also, the department faculty, staff, and other graduate students are very supportive and fun.
I hope to continue my research and efforts in protecting pollinators from non-target effects of pesticides.
Bees are so fuzzy and cute.
Art of all sorts.
