Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a graduate student in the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology department studying the Asian Tiger Mosquito. During my undergraduate research I chased insects all over the great plains often hurtling cattle fences or crawling under electric fences to do so. I'm excited to share my love of insects and the environment with Splash students!
