Undergraduate Research Assistant and Student Museum Curator
Charlie is an undergraduate student at UCSB studying biology and education. Since the fall of 2018 at CCBER, he works mainly with bee specimens, including collection, curation, and identification. Charlie also began a research project during stay-at-home testing the efficacy of identifying bee species and populations based on wing venation alone, using geometric morphometrics. His research interests include bees, ecology, phenology, museum data, and getting as many people excited about bees as possible through education and outreach. He plans to pursue a PhD after graduating from UCSB.
