Key Areas of Research: Biological pest management approaches, conservation of beneficial organisms, chemical ecology and insect host plant and insect -insect interactions with the view of manipulating them for sustainable and economical pest management. I am also interested in the exploitation of botanical extracts for pest management. I study the impacts of associated crops (mixed and inter cropping) on pest population development and damage.
