Working on catching some  #spottedlanternfly adults over the next few weeks as adults continue to invade the eastern US.

Be sure to keep smashing lanternflies and reporting them to your local department of agriculture as you see them.

It may be a year later, but I was finally able to attend my graduate hooding (graduation) ceremony @umassboston . 

Grateful to be surrounded by love and support today and every day. Proud to finally be able to *officially* call myself  #umassbostonalumni 

Thank you to my family for being there with me today, and thank you to my advisor for hooding me, and thank you to all my friends and family who shared in celebrating today.

In a hurry to go nowhere…

My lab is currently studying the invasive spotted lanternfly. This one was in a hurry to climb to higher areas on this locust tree, but a pesky scientist got in the way.

Remember, if you see spotted lanternflies, please squash and report to your local department of agriculture.

Looking back on a largely successful few days of lab work (and a good sequencing run!) with the  #woodhamslab before preparing for the upcoming Fall semester. 

Grateful to have had the time to move some of these projects forward and catch up with some friends in Boston.

Hands-down my favorite lab oven mitt.

It’s been a busy couple of days back in the lab at @umassboston and I’m grateful for the research community here and having the chance to catch up with awesome folks in the  #woodhamslab

Is it time for the weekend yet?
Are you sure?

I love funny bird faces! Never fails to make me laugh a little.

Ready for some time to breathe, pack, and prep this weekend for some fieldwork on Nantucket next week. Needless to say, I’m ready to be back on island!

Just hugging trees and catching bugs…
.
Friendly reminder to squash invasive (and destructive) spotted lanternflies if you see them, and be sure to report them to your local department of agriculture.

Is it weird that I’m missing our Brood X cicada friends from a few weeks ago? Is it just me? Maybe?

Find the green stink bugs! 🧐

Maybe not the hardest photo challenge, but I was definitely surprised when I stumbled onto them! 

What’s the most surprising animal you’ve stumbled upon in nature?
