I am interested in conservation biology and the use of taxonomic knowledge of Lepidoptera to better protect and manage biodiversity. After graduation I will continue in graduate school to strengthen my research experience and gain a more specialized and targeted education in taxonomy and conservation. This will prepare me for a career in research and management of protected areas at the landscape scale.
