I am bi and I am an entomologist and ecologist. //

I’m a student in the Masters of Pest Management program at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada. I’ve been obsessed with animals and insects since I was a child. Now I’m learning about how I can use that obsession to help humans and animals coexist, and what to do when that goes wrong. I study the invasive European fire ant here in the Metro Vancouver Area. Since moving to Vancouver, I’ve been able to be completely open about who I am, and I’m so thankful for that. I want to give back by being visible myself. Bisexual people exist, and we are in STEM (and everywhere else).
