Research Interests: : As an entomologist and ecologist, I am fascinated not only by the incredible diversity insects display in both morphology and natural history, but also by their ability to shape their environment through interactions with other organisms and each other. I am particularly interested in the outcome of these interactions in a world where both insects and the landscapes they occupy are changing rapidly due to human activity. In my dissertation work I am investigating how landscape mediated changes in insect herbivores, pollinators and natural enemies affect their interactions with non-crop plants coexisting in modified landscapes and the resulting consequences for plant evolution.
