Research Interests

I study interactions between plants and pollinators — mainly bumblebees. One special type of pollination, termed buzz pollination, involves bees vibrating the anthers of flowers at high frequencies to release pollen. I quantify bumblebees’ vibrations to gain insight into the relationships between plants and their pollinators.
In addition to analyzing my own data, I help people analyze experimental and observational data.  I am happy to teach about statistical analysis and/or consult researchers on analysis techniques.
