Senior Researcher and Outreach Coordinator
As Senior Researcher and Outreach Coordinator, Kait provides strategic direction for outreach efforts through the development and implementation of programs and projects to engage key audiences.
Kait received a B.S. in insect science (2014) and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in entomology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a research background broadly in plant-insect interactions. During her time as a graduate student, Kait devoted time to teaching and developing science literacy and informal outreach programs that communicate complex scientific topics to diverse audiences.
When she finds the time, Kait likes to explore Nebraska’s parks, cultivate plants, and paint. She especially loves spending time at home with her husband and young son.
