<i>Research interests</i>

Our lab studies the ecology and evolution of plant-insect interactions, including aspects of herbivory, community ecology, chemical ecology, ecological gradients, and coevolution. Research projects include work on tritrophic interactions and trophic cascades, above-belowground interactions, local biodiversity, the biology of soil biota, the evolution of plant defense strategies, and epigenetic mechanisms of plant resistance.
