Entomologist, Wanderer & Biker
I'm Angela (she/her), I am an agronomist in love with insects and ecology. I have worked with them for over 10 years, learning about their life cycle, how to rear them, how to collect them and curate them.
I am a PhD student in the Gruner's Lab of Forest Ecology and Entomology at the University of Maryland.
I have a strong background in agriculture which allows me to understand and interconnect the close relationship between insects, plants, biotic and abiotic factors. This has allowed me to dwell and deeply enjoy the field of Ecology.
Starting my PhD in forest ecology has shown to be a perfect opportunity to see beyond the picture of a controlled agroecosystem and learn more about the natural interactions between the landscape and the insect I am working with. Learn more about it on my Current Research page.
