Research interests: My research interests are diverse, but my focus is mainly in the field of chemical ecology. My current project deals with lepidopteran pests of the cranberry production system. I am also very interested in wasps and yellowjackets as well.
Personal Interests: I am a very involved member of the local roller derby league here, in Madison. I currently play on a home team, the Vaudeville Vixens, as well as a travel team, the Dairyland Dolls B-team. Between roller derby and research, there isn’t much time for other hobbies, but I especially enjoy gardening, hiking, fishing, camping, raising poultry, sewing, and fiber arts.
