Currently, I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in the Socha Lab at Virginia Tech (Dept of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics) studying wing vein physiology and quantifying flow and hydraulics of hemolymph in insect wings. I am passionate about science communication and developing courses that blend hands-on biology and engineering principles. Read more about me.
Where will you find me doing science? You'll find me in the entomology collections, capturing animal locomotion with high-speed cameras in the field, working with insects, or glued to a microscope.
