Postdoctoral Research Associate, Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Project (Former)


David is an ecologist and entomologist whose primary responsibility is to manage the Brown Marmorated Stink (BMSB) Project. The samurai wasp, a parasitoid that attacks BMSB eggs, has recently been found in Oregon and appears to be a good candidate to manage BMSB. David is investigating samurai wasp’s establishment and movement in hazelnut and small fruit orchards and the potential for biological control. Before coming to OSU, David worked in integrated pest management of vegetable crops in the Midwest and studied pests and pollinators in urban agriculture. He holds a PhD in Ecology and Evolution from University of Illinois-Chicago, an MS in Entomology from University of Wisconsin, and a BA from CUNY-Lehman College.
