Katherine (Kate) Borchardt is smiling while sitting on a beach with the wind in her hair! She has germanic features, with dirty-blonde hair and blue eyes.

I am a second year PhD student in Amy Toth's Lab. I am currently studying pollination networks in restored prairie strips within corn and soybean fields in Iowa with a focus on native bee and wasps as pollinators. My favorite Iowan bee species are Megachile latimanus, especially the males with their "lobster claws". My hobbies include painting, sewing, and singing in choir.
