Sarah has worked in the lab for two summers. She has a strong interest in aquatic insects and has been working on a project assessing the influence of run-off of agricultural insecticides on aquatic insects in vernal pools in central Pennsylvania. Sarah's work has been collaborative with Dr. Heather Gall in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, and it has been funded by an Undergraduate Research Grant from the College of Agricultural Sciences, a seed grant from PSIEE (Penn State Institute for Energy and the Environment), and Penn State's Office of the Physical Plant.
In her spare time, Sarah keeps bees and has been serving as the 2016 Pennsylvania Honey Queen. In this capacity she travels the state promoting the value of beekeeping to various groups. She even attended Penn State's Great Insect Fair and shared a moment with John at the Bee House!
