Asst. Cooperative Extension Specialist
Dept. of Entomology, UC Riverside
As agricultural entomologists, our research and extension programs focus on the development, evaluation and adoption of sustainable pest management practices for orchards and vineyards. Based at the UC Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center (Parlier, CA), our lab strives to develop pest management strategies that leverage our understanding of insect ecology, behavior, and plant-insect interactions in order to reduce the negative environmental impacts of crop production.
