Current Research:

My research will assess temporal changes of alpine pollinator communities in Glacier National Park by resurveying butterfly biodiversity in monitoring plots established by Diane Debinski in 1987-1989. I will also compare traditional surveys to novel molecular techniques by using wildflowers as a source of environmental DNA for DNA metabarcoding of pollinators.
