Credentials: PhD Student - Crall Lab


I study the effects of wildfire ash and smoke on plant-insect interactions and the effects of heatwaves on bee biology.


Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in iBio?

I wanted a graduate program with more support for students and because I think my research moves across scales, so it’s nice to be in a broader department

Why or what do you love about the program? 

I like that a lot of my friends are in the program and that the department seems to make positive decisons for graduate students

Fun fact about yourself: I ride horses

Educational background:

I have a B.S. in entomology from UC Davis
