Position
  • Graduate Research Assistant
At Kansas State University, my Master's research involved determining the influence of spray coverage and application frequency on insecticide efficacy against two greenhouse insect pests, citrus mealybug and western flower thrips. I learned extensively about greenhouse pest management and insecticide usage through this research program, which further increased my interest in entomology and pest management.

I eventually decided to shift toward working in agricultural systems. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in Dr. Aaron Gassmann's laboratory. My research project at Iowa State University involves characterizing insect movement within the field, pest survival and emergence patterns, and damage to crops among different corn hybrids (Bt vs. Non-Bt, short corn vs. tall corn). Primarily, I am interested in understanding how insect pests interact with short-stature corn and how this relates to insect resistance management. My research involves studies with corn rootworm, corn earworm, and European corn borer.
