Hello! I am a PhD student studying insect eco-immunology. I am interested in why cold activates the immune system in some insects and what the interactions are between cold stress and pathogen stress in overwintering insects. Overall, I am interested in how environmental stress affects and immune system and especially how multiple stressors interact to alter immunocompetence. Below is a list of some skills I have acquired, my contact information and a list of publications. Feel free to contact me!
