We work on community ecology and ecosystem function in a range of systems.
PhD candidate (with Rader Lab)
I received a B.S. in Entomology with distinction in research and a minor in fungal biology at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. At Cornell, I completed an honours project on the potential for Eristalis (Diptera: Syrphidae) flower flies to vector fecal-orally transmitted bee parasites. At UNE, I am researching the efficiency of fly pollinators in Australian horticultural crops.
General interests: Insect pollinators, pollinator health, disease ecology and fungal biology
