When did you join the Salt Institute?

I’ve been with the group since the beginning in 2012, but I’ve been working on insect cold hardiness since 2010.

What insect(s) do you study?

My research focuses on the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis).

What do you research?

My master’s thesis research is about if and how host species influences the cold hardiness of insects, specifically if emerald ash borer from green ash are more (or less) cold hardy than emerald ash borer from black ash.
