I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Jha lab at the University of Texas at Austin. As a conservation ecologist, I study wild bees at the individual, population, and community levels to understand how bees move through landscapes and to identify methods of protecting these important pollinators in the face of continued habitat loss. My primary research interests include bee movement and dispersal, nesting behavior, and community response to habitat restoration. Please see the Research page for detailed descriptions of my current projects and study sites.
