RESEARCH INTERESTS

My goal is to develop sustainable systems for integrated pest management of stink bugs and other key pests in row crops.  Current research is directed toward: 1) determining the impact of agricultural landscapes on populations of stink bugs and their natural enemies, 2) characterizing dispersal and seasonal phenology of stink bugs and their natural enemies, 3) developing spatial and temporal vegetational diversity within and around crop fields to conserve and enhance natural enemies, 4) assessing the impact of current pest intervention strategies on stink bugs and their natural enemies, 5) developing intervention strategies for controlling stink bugs that are less disruptive to natural enemies, and 6) developing organic management systems for controlling key pest insects in cotton and peanuts.
