Tara Celetti - M.Sc. Candidate
I received my BSc Honours Biology from Carleton University in 2013. Afterwards I travelled around Southeast Asia before a three month volunteering excursion at an orphanage in Tamil Nadu, India. I decided to continue my travels by moving to South Korea where I taught English for a year. While away, I realised I wanted to pursue my Master’s and the research being done in this lab caught my eye. Currently, the focus of my research is contributing to the development of standardized semi-field methods in order to evaluate the risk of pesticide exposure for the common eastern bumble bee (Bombus impatiens). Overall, my goal for obtaining an MSc is to further my understanding in the fields of environmental science, entomology and toxicology. I would love to pursue a career that can combine the knowledge I gain from this experience and apply it to future research in bumble bee conservation.
