The Team

Jenna Ceraso


I am a senior biological engineering and entomology double-major. My two majors allow me to pursue my interests in insects, anthropogenic climate change, and engineering in the hopes of optimizing the lives of the most people possible and preserving and restoring biodiversity. In addition to Hive, I am also the Business Team Lead on the Cornell University Biomedical Devices project team and pursuing independent research in the Jung Lab. Currently, my research focuses on how substrate-borne vibrations impact communication in Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Coleopteran) in a bio-inspired fluids lab. This summer, I am excited to pursue research on how human interactions in urban gardens and milpa systems impacts insect biodiversity in the Patzcuaro Basin, Morelia, Mexico. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, reading, and time with my friends.
