My research focusses on invertebrate ecology in the agri-environment and primarily the impacts of farming practice and land management on the ecosystem services of pest control and pollination underpinning crop production. I have worked in many cropping systems including arable, soft fruit and top fruit production and my research is applied and often industry funded.

Specific areas of interest include:

– Insect pollination ecology and crop production

– Ecological intensification of smallholder farming systems

– Effects of agricultural practices on pests and natural enemies

– Trophic influences of soil fertility management in agricultural systems

– Integrated Pest Management.
