About

I am broadly interested in how insects use and integrate information from their environments to make decisions. Additionally, I am interested in how physiology can modify the strength of responses by insects to external cues. I am specifically interested in host-location and host-range. I wish to use the results of my research to inform management of non-native insects or pests.
