"I started exploring research opportunities in 2015, in the fall of my sophomore year. I'm now doing ecology research with associate professor of biology Michelle Boone and her graduate students, Tyler Hoskins and Miranda Strasburg, all of whom have been great mentors for me. Last summer here at the Ecology Research Center (ERC) we studied the effects of parasite and fungus co-infections on [cricket] frogs."
