Research Interests

My research interest has focused on understanding factors that support insect life and interactions in agricultural and other human landscapes. I am keen on understanding the community ecology of insect pollinators and other beneficial insects. I also investigate the effect of various environmental stressors on their taxonomic diversity and interaction networks.
