I am a community ecologist with a specific focus on pollinators. Currently, I am conducting a multi-year survey of the native bee populations across the state of North Carolina, with the main goal of assessing how the addition of planted pollinator habitat in agricultural landscapes affects these populations over time. As part of the same study, I am looking at several different aspects of pollinator interactions including pathogen ecology, temporal population growth, differences in populations due to habitat type, and the resulting impacts on nearby cropping systems. This research will result in the most detailed survey of native bees in NC to date and will help inform future conservation decisions.
