My research applies population genetics, evolutionary and ecological theory, and genomics to understand agricultural pests. I am always keen to explore new approaches and cutting-edge technologies. This is important because some of the most innovative and transformative advances in genomics are coming from human genomics, and I draw upon these advances and apply them to insect and weed pests. As a result, my research combines cutting-edge genomic tools and ecological experimentation to investigate agricultural pests in an evolutionary context, with the goal of protecting agricultural crops and ensuring global food security.
