Sydney joined RNAissance Ag as a Research Associate in July 2022.
Sydney has had an interest in studying biology since a young age. She pursued this interest by earning a bachelor’s in biology at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2020. During this time her primary focus was studying insects. She has experience studying arthropod diversity in correlation with invasive plant abundance.
Her focus then shifted to studying honey bees which became the basis for her master’s in biology which she earned in 2022.
Sydney brings experience rearing insects and studying ethanol tolerance and preference in honey bees.
