Research interests

I am interested in the implementation of biological control programs against noxious weed and insect pests. In my current position I am responsible for overseeing the activities of permanent staff involved in the collection and rearing, release and evaluation of natural enemies against pests throughout California. My special interests are insect biology and taxonomy, and my hobbies are playing guitar in a rock and roll band and compiling digital images of cerambycid beetles.
