I’m a PhD student in the Graduate Program in Entomology and an NSF GRFP Fellow. In general, I am interested in plant-insect interactions in agroecosystems and the use of ecoinformatics to inform pest management decisions. For my PhD, I am researching earwigs in California citrus. My main research areas are: 1) understanding the nature of earwig damage to young citrus fruits and 2) designing management options for earwig control. With my research I aim to provide growers and crop consultants with increased information about pests and effective, sustainable pest management.
