Education and Background

Ph.D. Entomology. University of Wisconsin-Madison. December 2012. Dissertation title: “Blister Beetles (Coleoptera: Meloidae) of Wisconsin: Distribution and Ecology.” Advisor, Daniel Young.

M.S. Biology-Ecology Program. San Diego State University. May 2005. Thesis title: “Factors Influencing Population Viability of Hermes Copper (Lycaena hermes).” Advisor, Douglas Deutschman.

Research Interests

My research interests include organismal, population and community ecology, specifically addressing questions important to natural resource management and conservation.  Developing a better understanding of our native species, populations and communities can be critical for effective and efficient management and conservation efforts.  My research background primarily consists of working with insects and birds.
