Research Interests
Dr. Zettler’s research interests include studying the ecological effects of invasive insects on native invertebrates and plants. Her most recent work includes collaborative projects investigating symbiotic relationships between insects and bacteria. In addition, she is investigating how algal waste biomass from aquaponics and natural water systems can be used (creating ceramic products) or recycled (insect decomposers). Dr. Zettler earned a B.S. in Entomology from the University of Florida, and both her M.S. (Entomology) and Ph.D. (Zoology) degrees from Clemson University.
