Research Interests:My primary research interests are insect pathology and microbial biocontrol of insect pests in forestry and agriculture. I am investigating the biology, ecology, and species diversity of entomopathogenic fungi (Hypocreales, Entomophthorales) in populations of insect pests. I am also interested in testing entomopathogenic fungi from the genus Beauveria and Metarhizium against invasive insect species in forest habitats. Another area of research that interests me is the impact of climate change on invasive alien insects in forests.
