Fruit Crop Entomology

My research focuses on natural kairomones and pheromones that drive insect behavioral responses; and exploiting these responses to develop attractants to aid in sustainable pest management programs.  We are currently focusing on two main pests:

Spotted Wing Drosophila on raspberries

Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs on cranberries

I also work on promoting natural pollinators of cranberries
