Expertise: Nursery and greenhouse


I received my doctorate in 2010 from Oregon State University in Entomology. My graduate work focused on invertebrate community responses to disturbance, primarily agriculture. I've done work since in forestry and most heavily in Pollinator Ecology and Integrated Pest Management in the Willamette Valley. Currently, my work is focused on pest management solutions in Nursery and Ornamental crops, with emphasis on natural enemies.
