About The Author

My focus is on pest control & environmental stress adaptation. Undertaking research on invertebrates, developing integrated pest control options for the grains industries, investigating how landscape changes can be harnessed to provide pest control services & contributing to novel approaches for suppressing dengue mosquito vectors. We focus on adaptation to rapid environmental changes in a range of species, developing ways of incorporating evolutionary approaches when making predictions about adaptive capacity & when predicting species distribution shifts under climate change. We have expertise in genetics and genomics, pest entomology & physiological ecology.
