Start year: 2018
Interests:
Biodiversity informatics, biological knowledge, community science, cold-adapted insects. I am broadly interested in the mechanisms that allow for insect survival at cold temperatures such as those exhibited within Arctic and alpine regions. I am also very interested in projects that deal with biological knowledge modeling, data bias, and the interface of humans and our natural world.
