Plant-insect Interactions in the Ensemble

Hello there!

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology at Michigan State University, working under Dr. Will Wetzel and Dr. Kadeem Gilbert. I am broadly interested in plant-insect interactions, particularly plant functional variability, stochastic processes, and plant defense against herbivory. I investigate general questions about plant-insect ecology by exploring natural history in the field, building mathematical models, and synthesizing large datasets. I am also passionate about statistics education and helping students develop their own research projects.
