My research focuses on how human activities affect terrestrial invertebrate communities and the ecosystem services they provide, with a special interest in riparian and grassland ecology, food webs, native bees, and invertebrate predators.

We are beginning to understand that interactions between landscape elements underlie many of the important issues we face as a human society. I am fascinated by the ecological processes that tie landscapes together.

The ecology of urban and suburban landscapes remains relatively unexplored - although such habitats have great potential to positively contribute to the conservation of pollinators, parasitoids and the ecosystem services that they confer.

Our team studies arthropod pests of small fruits and ornamental crops.  We focus on biologically-based approaches such as biological control (predators, parasitoids), characterizing host susceptibility, and behavioral manipulation to control these pests.
