I am broadly interested in invertebrate ecology in both natural and agricultural ecosystems. I am interested in studying the ecosystem effects of cattle, elk and deer grazing in rangelands riparian areas. I am particularly interested in the effects on native bee species and on flowering plant communities. Check out this video detailing some of the work I did in my Masters thesis!
I am also interested in the ecology and behavior of beneficial invertebrates. While I focused on bees in the work I did for my Masters thesis, I am also interested in beneficial invertebrates such as predatory wasps and beetles and parasitoids that may help control pests.
