I am an undergraduate student at LSU majoring in pest management. Before working in the Lord Lab, I worked in another entomology lab rearing Southern Green and Red Banded Stinkbugs and Soybean Looper Moths. With the help Dr. Lord and the other students in the lab, I am beginning to research an iridescent mantis species, Metallyticus splendidus. I am interested in art, color, insects, and taxonomy.
