Research Interest: Insect sociality and communication, chemical ecology, and invasive ecology are my top three interests. I am interested in the underlying factors/mechanisms that drive sociality among insect populations and the different signals and interactions they share with other surrounding organisms (plants, fungi, other root herbivores and soil arthropods). I am also very curious about asking questions surrounding invasive entomology (basic natural history research, epidemiological impacts of introduced species, impacts on native landscapes of flora and fauna) in the chemical ecology context. In studying these specific relationships, I believe there is great potential for applied and interdisciplinary research opportunities.
