Research Focus:

I am broadly interested in the evolutionary responses of insects to their constantly changing environment. Humans are an important source of this change, often imposing strong selection on insect populations through management practices. My current research explores how the genomes of Lepidopteran agricultural pests respond to selection imposed by transgenic crops.
