Research Interests

I study collective decision making in honeybees. I began by studying how honeybees regulate the construction of different types of comb, but have since shifted my interests into studying how honeybees guard against other honeybees. Current theory suggests that how accepting guards bees are of incoming bees should be condition dependent. Better understanding the nature of these conditions is the current focus of my research.

Director of Graduate Partners in Science Education (GPSE)

GPSE is a graduate student run organization program with two overarching goals. First, we provide science education outreach to local middle schools in the form of after school science clubs. Second, we provide pedagogical training to aspiring scientists to promote better communication and evidence based education practices.
