Rachael E. Bonoan

I am an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Biology major at Providence College. I recently finished my post-doctoral research in the Crone Lab (Tufts University) and the Schultz Lab (Washington State University, Vancouver) on ant-caterpillar interactions in the South Puget Sound, WA. For my PhD, I studied honey bee behavioral ecology, nutritional ecology, and ecological immunity in the Starks Lab (Tufts University).


I am passionate about ecology, social insects, and insect pollinators!
