Kassandra Allan, Researcher at University of California Cooperative Extension, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in entomology.
As an entomology researcher with the University of California Cooperative Extension, Ms. Allen is responsible for counting and identifying insect samples that have been collected in the field. Previously, she had obtained an Associate of Arts in 2019 from Palo Verde College in Blythe. She is currently enrolled in University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she is studying for a bachelor’s degree.
Ms. Allan wanted to be an entomologist because she really wanted to study insects. She has always been fascinated with how insects work in nature. While she was getting her associate degree, her microbiology professor recommended her for the job as a researcher. It was also something that she wanted to do for her career, so it worked out perfectly for her. She attributes her success to her family and friends, who have always been encouraging and proud of her for pursuing her career and her interest.
Ms. Allan’s goal in the next five to ten years is to obtain her bachelor’s degree in insect science and start her graduate program. She also aims to work overseas, preferably in Japan.
