Research Interests

I am interested in studying plant-insect interactions such as the role of pollination in plant fitness, and I’m curious what characteristics of fire make it so beneficial for prairie plants.  


I am originally from St. Paul, MN, but I’ve spent a lot of time in the land of prairies because I just graduated from college in Morris.  In my spare time, I can be found climbing trees, baking cheesecake, and peering at the undersides of leaves looking for insects.  At the moment, my favorite insect is the brown mantidfly (Climaciella brunnea).
