We study insect behavioral ecology within the framework of pollination and host-parasitoid interactions.
Research on pollination ecology concerns pollinator learning and decision-making; social organization of pollinators; and agricultural pollination. Recent and ongoing projects include:
Recent and ongoing work on parasitoid ecology deals with the ecology of polyembryonic parasitoid development; the role of learning in parasitoid behavior; and the use of parasitoids for biological control. Projects include:
