My lab focuses on understanding the ecology of beneficial insects in agro-ecosystems and the greater landscape. Our goal is to better characterize the landscape and resources utilized by insects to understand how land management might affect insect community composition and ecosystem service delivery. The focus of the lab is primarily on pollinating insects but students interested in other taxa (insect predators and parasitoids) are encouraged to apply.
