Laura Jones is an NSF graduate research fellow and PhD candidate in the Ecology Program, and is co-advised by Drs. Margarita López-Uribe and Rudolf Schilder. She obtained her B.S. in Biology with a minor in Environmental Studies from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA (USA) in 2018. At Penn State, Laura’s research integrates principles from disease ecology and insect physiology to study host-pathogen dynamics in pollinator communities that rely on agroecosystems here in North America, as well as how disease pressure and climate may impact the thermal tolerance of solitary bees.
