  Research Focus

  My main research focuses on pest biological control, biorational control, insect ecology, chemical ecology, tritrophic interactions of insect-plant-natural enemies, and low input and environmental friendly pest management. I also develop biorational and Integrated Pest Management approaches for managing insect pests of important crops, including field crops and vegetables.
