Christine Elliott is an incoming entomology Ph.D. student at Purdue University. Her master’s research at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa centered on conservation and population ecology of a federally listed endangered Hawaiian moth. As she joins the Kaplan Insect Ecology Lab and the DCB project, Christine is excited to broaden her conservation efforts by investigating the impact of farming system diversification on insect biodiversity and ecosystem function.
