My research focuses on the effect of landscapes on major pest species in the region. I also work with developing non-crop field habitats that seek to provide suitable habitat for beneficial arthropod species, conservation of wildlife and other ecological services. I am conducting research that increases our understanding of multi-trophic interactions and insect behavior in major crops of the region so we may develop alternatives to chemical management of insect pests.
