Acting Research Leader, Principle Investigator
Since my grad school days, I’ve been primarily focused on insect stress physiology. Although I have a soft spot for cold stress, I find most any stress intriguing, and I’m interested in most any aspect of the stress response. This is important because insects rule the world, and the ability to withstand a large range of stresses is a significant reason why.

I study the regulation of insect diapause and cold tolerance and how we can use this information to better manage economically important insects. To understand these complex phenotypes, I use an integrative approach combining organismal, physiological, molecular, and computational methods. My primary model is the Alfalfa leafcutting bee, Megachile rotundata, but I have also worked with a variety of other species including the Asian longhorned beetle and the Colorado potato beetle.
