I joined the Song lab in the fall of 2012 and I’m currently finishing the BioBlitz for Wekiwa Springs State Park, Rock Springs Run State Reserve, and Seminole State Forest. I will be installing a hydroponic system in the spring of 2013 to make our colony self-sustainable. My interest in insects comes from my background in permaculture. I have interned at different types of organic farms in Florida and abroad. I have been learning apiculture for the last two years under my parents' guidance. In the future, I want to do research on the immunology and pollination ecology of honey bees.
