Areas of Expertise:
Insect molecular biology, molecular genetics, Bt resistance mechanism, microscopy

Research Organisms:
pink bollworm

 

Research Focus:

I am broadly interested in understanding how insect pests evolve resistance to Bt crops. Specifically, I use tools related to molecular genetics, cell biology, and Next Gen. Sequencing analysis to compare between resistant and susceptible populations of pink bollworm, a global pest of cotton.
