My research interests focus on the ecology and behaviour of insect parasitoids and predators in relation to biological control of agricultural pests, with emphasis on non-target effects of biological control agents, parasitoid-host interactions and intraguild predation.
Current research projects include IPM of elephant weevil borer and cocoa pod borer, improved management of GM refuges in cotton, biological control of thaumastocorids on eucalypts, and improving uptake of biological control by Australian growers.
