PhD Student, Biocontrol of Vegetable Pests

Advisor: Dr. Thomas Kuhar

Dissertation title: Novel integrated pest management approaches for insect pests in cucurbit agroecosystems

Research interests:  I am fascinated by the many roles insects play in vegetable agriculture.  Holistically, I seek to develop effective pest management strategies that incorporate both chemical and biological control tactics, with particular emphasis on the utilization and conservation of natural enemies in vegetable production systems.
