Staci Cibotti

I am interested in investigating how exposure to agricultural toxins might affect pollinator health, and subsequently population persistence within agroecosystems. My PhD work will focus on assessing the effects of neonicotinoid pesticides on monarch-milkweed interactions, and monarch behavior and physiology. I am co-advised by Dr. Ruud Schilder, and am funded by Penn State’s Integrative Pollinator Ecology Fellowship.
