My research aims to better understand the importance of biodiversity (specifically insects) to the health and functioning of agricultural ecosystems - often focusing on soil. My work combines entomology, community science, ecology, and natural history.

"Uncovering the importance of insects for healthy soils, will further emphasize the urgency of conserving insect biodiversity in agroecosystems."
