Principal Investigator

Dr. Elinor Lichtenberg - Assistant Professor


Dr. Lichtenberg is a behavioral and community ecologist. She is interested in how plant-pollinator interactions change with the biological community in which they are taking place under global change. She combines empirical (field and lab), modeling and meta-analytic approaches, and conducts research in both temperate and tropical systems.

Michelle is broadly interested in plant-pollinator interactions and conserving native bees. Her previous projects include developing seed mixes for pollinators to maximize their restoration potential while lowering costs. She has experience with native and honey bees, but is most curious about habitat needs for native bees. Additionally, Michelle has a commitment to improving diversity and inclusion in her community, especially in STEM.
