Education:

PhD 1989, University of California, Riverside         

 

Research Interests:

My areas of interest include IPM and alternative control approaches, monitoring and management of insecticide resistance, non-target effects of insecticide use in agriculture, vector/plant pathogen relations and disease epidemiology, and insect population dynamics. Current research is focused on developing management solutions and mitigating plant diseases resulting from the vectoring activity of the invasive pests Bemisia tabaci (biotype B, silverleaf whitefly) and Homalodisca vitripennis (glassy-winged sharpshooter). Complementary field, greenhouse, and laboratory-based approaches provide a holistic approach to addressing fundamental and applied aspects of pest insect biology and ecology.
