Research Affiliate & Collection Assistant
Elaine has volunteered and worked at CCBER since her first year as an undergraduate at UCSB in 2014, starting out on the restoration side of things and moving over to the media, monitoring, and collections side. She has graduated and now works on curating, imaging, and databasing the UCSB Invertebrate Zoology Collection at CCBER. She is also assisting in sorting and identifying Formicidae (ant) and Apoidea (bee) specimens, and helping out with monitoring efforts. Her interests lie in natural history illustration and birding around Santa Barbara.
