Research: 

My program is centered around the ecology of plants, insects, and their  multi-trophic interactions.  My current research radiates into a number of research foci including the effect soil biochemical factors on plant resistance to pests, biological control, and chemical mediation of plant-insect interactions for the sustainable management of economically important arthropod species in agricultural and turf systems. I am also interested in furthering our understanding of the role microbes (pathogenic and/or mutualistic) play in modulating interactions between insects an their environment.
