Assistant Professor – Environmental Science


My main interest is insect ecology, and my current research includes both freshwater ecology and pollinator biology. I am studying the mechanisms of detritus breakdown in forest streams, and how those processes contribute to the overall carbon budget of forests. I am also interested in native pollinators, and how their numbers can be enhanced in commercial cranberry fields to increase fruit yields, and to ensure healthy insect populations. I am also fascinated by snow, both ecologically and recreationally.​
