The focus of my research includes a mix of basic and applied research that supports the urban and stored product sectors. Current research includes: the behavioral ecology of bed bugs and stored product pests, including mold mites, leading toward sustainable Integrated Pest Management (IPM) solutions. As such, I collaborate with the pest control industry vial applied research and subsequent educational programs. My research program supports a Junior Scientist, 2 PhD Students, a MS Student and 2 undergraduate students.
