Postdoctoral researcher at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, NC, USA


My project: I will investigate the ant fauna on the island and photograph the most common ant species/genera. I’ll then create an intuitive visual identification key. As part of my research at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences I work with K-12 teachers to bring citizen science projects (such as my project “Ant Picnic”) into the science classroom. A lot of my work deals with making ants and ant science more accessible to a broad audience. More about this work at
