Echinacea Project 2016

Hi everyone! I’m a biology major and a political science minor.  I attend the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, and I will be graduating from there in 2017.

Research Interests

My primary research interests pertain to conservation biology and environmental science as it applies to biology.  As a part of a Wooster education, students are required to complete an independent study project.  For my project, I have chosen to study the exposure and effects of neonicotinoid pesticides on the native solitary pollinators of Echinacea.  In future research and study, I really want to focus on how human activities have and currently are affecting fragile and scarce ecosystems like the prairies.


I am originally from Chagrin Falls (a small suburb southeast of Cleveland, Ohio).  In my spare time I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, fly fishing, and backpacking, and in recent years these activities have taken me all over the United States.  I truly love to travel, and I hope to do more in the future.  I also love to draw and paint, and I look forward to doing some while I am in Minnesota.
