    Research P
    hilosophy
    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.

    Current Research:
    Diversity of lepidoptera at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico, USA and Cuatro Cienagas Protected Area, Coahuila, Mexico.

    Forest moth taxa as indicators of habitat quality in northeastern New York pitch pine scrub oak forest under differing conservation management regimes.

    Curating lepidoptera collection at the Museum of Southwestern Biology.
