My research is related to the management of insect pests of annual crops, with a focus on soybeans. My overall goal is the development of pest management programs that are economically and environmentally sustainable. My lab is currently exploring how conservation methods may improve the abundance and diversity of beneficial insects that contribute to aphid mortality and crop pollination, which includes study of the pollinator community that resides within corn and soybean fields.
