Chris began his MSc in the Fall of 2020, working on a project centered around subnivean (below the snow and above the soil) insect communities. Specifically, he focused on how these unique ecosystems are affected in areas where snowpack has experienced measurable decreases in both depth and duration as a result of climate change. Chris successfully defended his thesis in spring 2023. Congrats, Chris!
Chris initially worked for the lab as a research assistant for nearly two years, primarily working on the invasive emerald ash borer (EAB). Chris also earned his B.S. in Environmental Science: Ecosystems at UNH in 2019.
