I graduated from Cornell University in 2016 with a B.S. in entomology and am co-advised by Micky Eubanks and Mike Brewer. I have always been Interested in insect ecology and hope to apply ecological principles to crop protection. Before becoming an Aggie, I worked for the USDA ARS studying Bt resistance in the cotton bollworm. My project here will mainly focus on the ecology of sugarcane aphids in sorghum. I am also an avid insect collector and enjoy hiking in the woods.
