Academic Interests

I am interested in many aspects related to animals, including behavior, communication, biomechanics, and their amazing diversity. There is still so much we don’t know, especially with arachnids, and it’s exciting that every trial we run is a chance to learn more about the animal we study. I enjoy doing fieldwork and observing animals in their natural habitat as well.

Favorite Spider: Tarantulas. They are fuzzy and pet-able (sometimes)

Favorite Insect: Honey bees. I would love to try beekeeping at some point in life!

Favorite Food: Handmade noodles because they remind me of my hometown.
