Hi, I'm Jess and I am a PhD student in the Holway Lab at the University of California San Diego in the Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution Department. I am broadly interested in wild bee diversity, taxonomy, and life history. My PhD research looks at how habitat loss and fragmentation drive changes in native bee communities in a highly urbanized biodiversity hotspot. Specifically, which bee traits and life history patterns are associated with extinction risk.
