My applied research program involves the evaluation of new insecticide chemistries/mode (s) of actions as they become available for addressing insect pest management needs for the field crops grown in the state of Oregon, investigating host plant resistance due to plant-fungal endophyte interactions, conducting natural enemy surveys, and studying their biocontrol potential. 

The focus of my extension and research program is to provide up to date, research-based information to Oregon growers on effective and sustainable IPM practices.

Biography

My extension and applied research responsibilities primarily focus on insect pest management in field crops grown in Oregon statewide. My research interests focus on the evaluation of new insecticide chemistries, investigating host plant resistance, and exploring biological control options for the development and implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). I have the editor responsibilities for the Pacific Northwest Insect Management Handbook which is one of the widely used resources for practical insect pest management in the PNW. The focus of my extension and research program will be to provide up to date, research-based information to Oregon growers on effective and sustainable IPM practices.
