PEPS 690 - Graduate Seminar in Entomology (Spring 2018)

Professional Interests :

My research program is designed to be both integrated and applied. I am broadly interested in how the landscape can be designed and enhanced to promote pollinator health, particularly by adding flowering plants that meet the nutritional needs of honey bees and other pollinators. I am also working on building an extension program at UH that will provide information to farmers, beekeepers, and the general public on the best management practices for pollinator conservation and agricultural sustainability.
