Journey Prack is a fourth-year student from Denver, Colorado, majoring in Entomology with a certificate in Environmental Studies. As a URS Scholar, Journey worked with the Anthony Ives lab to research how food sources affect parasitic wasp dispersal among aphid populations. Through her work in the Ives lab, she got the opportunity to go to Mývatn, Iceland as a REU intern to study midge population dynamics. Currently, Journey is completing her senior thesis in the Kerri Coon lab, researching the pitcher-plant mosquito and its associated microbiota as a potential symbiotic driver. In her free time, Journey likes to cook, read, and spend time outdoors and with friends.
