Assistant Professor & Extension Specialist
I am broadly interested in the ecology and management of arthropod pests. Herbivorous arthropods cause extraordinary damage to plants in agricultural, urban, and natural ecosystems. Understanding interactions between pests and their environment, plant hosts, and natural enemies can improve management practices and reduce pesticide applications.
As you can see from perusing this website I am involved in research that ranges from fairly basic to very applied. My overall goal is to reduce pesticide use and associated risks to people, non-target organisms, and the environment.
