  • Undergraduate Institution: University of New Hampshire Durham

Graduate Research Topic
Investigating the effect of restored wetland management on floral resources to support native bee pollinators. I work in the Montezuma Wetlands Complex to determine how seasonal water drawdowns produce different flowering plant species, which in turn may result in unique pollinator assemblages. This will allow land managers to make more informed decisions to incorporate pollinators into future management plans, especially in a larger landscape context where wetlands may provide essential late-season resources.
