Science communication is an essential part of being a scientist.

— And I enjoy making my work accessible to a broad audience. There is a tendency in society to increasingly disconnect from nature. My contribution to changing that is by using my research and my passion for ants. I love telling the stories of my field experiences and sharing the incredible natural beauty I see around me.

Research is an adventure and I like to treat it as such.

PLEASE ALSO visit my web-based project discoverants.com where I feature educational resources primarily for teachers who want to bring ants and ant (citizen) science into their classrooms.


TEACHERS, WE CREATED a comprehensive TEACHER GUIDE built around the Ant Picnic Project – It features a suite of standards-aligned classroom materials for students in grades K-12 including data- and arts-focused activities such as Ant Picnic Data Discovery and Find Your Spirit Ant
