I am a research assistant for Erik Wenninger at the Kimberly Research and Extension Center. My work is broadly focused on the behavior and ecology of the potato psyllid, an important disease vector in potato crops.

B.S., University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, 2012
M.S., Eastern Illinois University, 2014

  • Psyllid behavior, ecology and monitoring
  • Pest management for a variety of organisms including wireworms and aphids

  • Lojewski, J.A., and P.V. Switzer. 2015. The role of landmarks in territory maintenance by the black saddlebags dragonfly, Tramea lacerata. Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology 69: 347-355.

I am originally from suburban Chicago. My research interests are primarily in animal behavior and ecology involving any organism that is accessible and interesting. In graduate school I worked with dragonflies, and my experience with insects gave me the opportunity to move out here to Idaho and work with a new organism, the potato psyllid (Bactericera cockerelli).
