Interests include the implementation of sustainable practices in the potato crop, insecticide and miticides applications to reduce pest population and their effect in non-target natural enemies. New emerging pests, such as the potato tuberworm, will be holistically approached through the use of integrated pest management practices. Pest biology, population characteristics, modeling, cultural, biological, chemical, and implementation and adoption of IPM practices will be studied in collaboration with other entomologists and crop production practitioners.
