Research Interests:
I study methods of genetic resistance to Colorado potato beetle and maintain experimental populations of CPB and russet potatoes. I’m interested in all kinds on insects, as well as understanding rapid evolution and patterns of natural selection.

Personal Interests:
I love reading and writing, and I work in a library. I’m also a news editor for the Badger Herald. I love being outside—hiking, hammocking, etc.
