Carolyn Trietsch, PhD Candidate in Entomology
I came to Penn State in 2014 to pursue my PhD in Entomology. I am currently working at the Frost Entomological Museum
on parasitic wasps of the family Megaspilidae, which belong to the superfamily Ceraphronoidea. I've done field work everywhere from Maine to Arizona, and even had the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at the Natural History Museum in London, UK, and the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, to image type specimens in the collections. I am currently working on revising the megaspilid genus Conostigmus
in North America.

This work will be submitted as a manuscript to the European Journal of Taxonomy. https://scholarsphere.psu.edu/collections/hqb98mf768
