Research Interests: The foundation of my research interest is in the application of molecular biology, microbiology, and ecology to create a comprehensive view of insect evolution and symbiosis. Building upon that foundation, I am fascinated by the variability of insect-microbe interactions, the nuances of adaptation to symbiosis, and the potential to leverage these research outcomes for agricultural pest and vector control or conservation
