I am interested in developing an Ecological Based - Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program in various crops. My area of expertise encompasses biological control, insect biology, ecology, and population dynamics; both basic and applied (field and greenhouse production). Crops I have worked with include potato, sweet potato, asparagus, cotton, corn, soybean, alfalfa, wheat, strawberry, and vegetables. My major responsibilities as an Extension Entomologist at OSU are to attend emergencies in irrigated crops in Eastern Oregon.
