From nuclear disasters to urban heat islands, insects respond to environmental change associated with human activity. What can we learn from them? DeAnna Beasley, Ph.D. explores how insects can serve as indicators of environmental change and provide insight into the impacts on human populations.

DeAnna Beasley is an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Her current research explores the implications of urbanization on insect development and biodiversity. Additionally, she is interested in the integration of social and ecological processes to understand urban biodiversity and the development of resilient cities.
