About me

AlaskaWelcome to my website! I am a USDA NIFA ELI Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Dr. Hollis Woodard at the University of California, Riverside studying bumble bee nutritional ecology. I am also a 2016 Science Policy Fellow for the Entomological Society of America.

For more information about my postdoctoral and dissertation projects, see “research” above.


I am also a skater for the IE Derby Divas (formerly for the Twin City Derby Girls). The roller derby community knows me as Polly Nator.
