I joined the lab in May 2018 and graduated from Temple in May 2020 with a B.S. in physics and a minor in computer science. My interests in computational analysis, mathematics, and coding led me to my role studying the Spotted Lanternfly. Bringing a fresh perspective to invasive species research, my role as a programmer has allowed us to make great strides in data mining and analysis. After my time with the lab, I hope to apply these skills in a software or web development environment.
