  1. Ph.D. Candidate in Entomology

I came to Penn State in 2014 to pursue my PhD in Entomology. I am currently working at the Frost Entomological Museum on parasitic wasps of the family Megaspilidae, which belong to the super-family Ceraphronoidea. I've done field work everywhere from Maine to Arizona, and even had the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at the Natural History Museum in London, UK, and the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, to image specimens in the collections. I am currently working on revising the megaspilid genus Conostigmus in North America.
