Ph.D. Entomology, University of Arizona, 1988
My areas of expertise include biological control, predator biology, and arthropod dispersal. My current interests include: (1) characterizing and estimating the impact of arthropod predation on pests using molecular gut content assays (e.g., ELISA and PCR) and (2) developing protein marking immunoassays for studying insect dispersal.
