In my current postdoctoral work at the University of Maryland (Department of Entomology; Dr. Bill Lamp’s lab) I’m interested in ecology and evolution of plant-insect interactions, and primarily novel interactions between native and introduced species. This is a continuation of my previous postdoctoral work at Wisconsin and doctoral research at Cincinnati. I’m curious what mechanisms drive such novel interactions, and how introduced species become invasive in natural and managed systems. Currently, I’m working on a variety of projects that involve DNA barcoding, microscopy, morphometric..
