I am a Research Entomologist at the Delta Research Center (University of Missouri) in Portageville, MO. I received my doctorate from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2010, where I studied the susceptibility of Oriental fruit moth to selected insecticides and mixtures.
Besides doing small plot field trials where I test the efficacy of new chemicals, I am also currently monitoring resistance to insecticides in tobacco thrips, cotton bollworm, and tarnished plant bug. I am sure I’ll branch out to additional pests as information from consultants and growers come forward. I enjoy working with the producers in the area to reduce pest pressure and increase yields.
