A student of Dr. Claudio Gratton, Jeremy’s research focuses on bumble bee behavior, colony performance, and population abundance as it relates to the amount of flowers available in the landscape.  He’s particularly interested in how agricultural land-use changes have affected flower abundance and the effect of those changes on wild bumble bees here in Wisconsin.  Using a variety of approaches including field/lab experiments and statistical modeling, Jeremy hopes to understand how to identify “good” landscapes for bumble bees so that we can work to conserve bee populations across the state.  Jeremy also constructed and manages this website.
