I am an evolutionary ecologist studying plant-insect interactions including pollination, herbivory and predation interactions applied to biological pest control. I use a variety of approaches including field observations, experimentation and modeling, touching disciplines as varied as community dynamics, chemical ecology, behavioral ecology and genomics.
I am starting a new project in agroecology part of the UKRI-funded H3 project: "Healthy Soil, Healthy Food, Healthy People", I will work on regenerative agriculture.
We have a new paper out in Advances in Ecological Advances about the impacts of global changes and future of parasitoid-based pest control, part review, part perspective.
