Key Accomplishments:

  • Generated savings in resources and improved efficiency in the laboratory by modifying some procedures, utilizing better equipment, and eliminating unnecessary steps in working with various insects in a horticultural setting.
  • Ensured and maintained safety in an environment where regular contact with chemicals, such as pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides, as well as dangerous equipment like chainsaws, is high.
  • Performed tasks in the laboratory efficiently with minimum supervision giving the boss more time to write grant proposals as well as complete and publish research.

Key Projects:

  • Spray and trap trials, natural enemy counts, leaf and shoot sample collection and short shoot syndrome identification.
  • Drosophila suzukii (Spotted-wing Drosophila fly) migration and identification studies.
  • Pheromone traps for filbertworm moths collection and placement.
  • Long-term study of Trioxys pallidus parasitism on native and invasive aphid species.
  • Rust mite migration monitoring from ornamental Tilia.
  • Bioassay creation and counting of Typhlodromus pyri predatory mites for spray trials.
  • Greenhouse planting for spider mite colonization as food source for T. pyri colonies.
