Research Interests: I am broadly interested in the role that plant associated microbes play in plant defense against herbivores and if these microbes could also have a role in minimizing the impact of abiotic stresses. I am also interested in how soil characteristics may impact microbes and their performance. I am currently focused on entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) and their potential for use in deterring root-feeding herbivores in turfgrasses.
