Research Interests:
My areas of expertise include, population ecology, biological control, sampling and decision-support systems, integrated pest management, and risk assessment in transgenic crops. My current interests include characterizing and estimating the impact of arthropod predation on cotton pests, conservation biological control through the use of selective insecticides, non-target effects of transgenic cottons, seasonal ecology of whitefly and lygus bugs, and survey and evaluation of arthropods inhabiting lesquerella and guayule, two new desert crops.
