Currently, graduate student at Keck Graduate Institute.
Formerly, an Associate research entomologist at Marrone Bio Innovations! I killed bugs with microbes. Our pesticides are safe for people and the environment.
Before that, I trekked up and down craggy mini-mountains on islands in the Pacific for the Moorea Biocode project. I collected, sorted and databased all the creepy crawlies.
I love to explore nature and discover living gems. I find weird looking things cute. :) I'm infatuated with insects!
