Research Topic:  Integrated Pest Management, Biological Control, Applied Insect Ecology

Research Program:  Research in our lab group is focused on the ecology and behavior of insects in agro-ecosystems. We study insects that are pests, and natural enemies within these agricultural systems and in the surrounding landscapes. The evaluation and optimization of pest management programs, and development of sustainable alternative management tactics towards the goal of conservation of biological control and pollinators is a key focus of our research.
