I got my B.S degree in Biology at the Nueva Granada University, and a master’s in entomology at Michigan State University (go green!), working with Rufus Isaacs. Currently I am a PhD student in the Applied Ecology Department at NCSU, working with Rebecca Irwin. I am broadly interested in the use of bees in agricultural settings and the pollination service they provide. I have worked in projects related to pollination of the Andean blueberry, bee diversity in passionfruit growing areas, ecology of urban bees, and management of alternatives pollinators (Osmia). My current research focuses on the transmission of a bumble bee pathogen and the factors influencing the transmission dynamics.
