As an Entomologist, I’m interested in relationships among arthropods and other organisms within an environmental context & how this information can be applied to support integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
Current research focuses within my lab are: 1) how to effectively combine IPM tactics to enhance pest management, and 2) how soil properties and soil biota impact herbivorous arthropods and their natural enemies.
