About Me

Science interests

  • I have always loved insects. When I was 7 years old I decided I wanted to be an entomologist... and look at me now!
  • I am most interested in systematics, evolution, and behavior of insects.
  • I enjoy blacklighting to capture moths, and rearing caterpillars in the lab.

Non-science interests

  • I am an avid crossfitter at Crossfit Storrs.
  • I have several pets including two rabbits, three snakes, one gecko, one salamander, and a bunch of guppies.
  • If I'm not at school or caring for my pets, I am probably sewing. Since 2007 I have run my sewing business, Weird Bug Lady, on Etsy.com. I make plush toys of insects and other animals.
