HELLO, I'M ANH!

I am a PhD candidate in the entomology department at the University of Minnesota. I am co-advised by Dr. Sujaya Rao and Dr. Mary Rogers. Research topics I am interested in, but not limited to, are biological control, invasive species, and integrated pest management. I enjoy disseminating results to scientific audiences and stake holders through written content and public presentations. I perform data analysis and visualization using R and am always looking for ways to improve my data science skills. Currently, my dissertation is focused on studying the winter survival strategy (overwintering or migration) of the invasive vinegar fly, Drosophila suzukii, also known as spotted-wing drosophila. Outside of academia, I practice yoga, run lots of miles, and volunteer in my community.
