With Dylan Parry at SUNY-ESF, I continue to examine the repurcussions of gypsy moth in North America. I am currently investigating parasitism of the rogue biological control agent, Compsilura concinnata, on native silk moths, and what forest community factors contribute to Compsilura distributions. I also regularly contribute to the popular entomology Facebook page, Relax. I'm an Entomologist.

What determines the composition of moth species in forests?
Specifically, to what extent tri-trophic interactions affect parasitoid populations.
Invasive Species Interactions
How does the ecosystem change with the introduction of novel species?
