I’m currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow jointly in the Department of Entomology at North Carolina State University and the Department of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania.

The main interests of my research broadly lie within the fields of behavioral ecology and insect physiology under an evolutionary framework. More specifically I am largely interested in mechanisms of disease and stress resistance and impacts of parasites on honey bees both at the individual and group/colony levels.

I have been fortunate during my career so far to gather a diverse set of tools under my belt, ranging from basic beekeeping skills and field studies, to lab studies on learning, aging, pathology, immunity and molecular biology. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
