Why insects?

Insects are amazing and intriguing, they play an important role as beneficials and/or maleficial to the environment and to us. Trying to understand them is fascinating.

Why University of Minnesota? 

UMN caught my attention because of the interaction of Entomology with Agronomy, which are my major interests. My favorite thing about UMN is the support offered by the faculty and staff.


Being able to help grow more sustainable food and raw materials.
