I am a scientist with expertise in biological control, including classical and bioherbicide approaches. My research has involved testing plant invasion mechanisms and underpinning theory of biological control by comparing invasive weeds in their native and introduced ranges. My current research involves consumer-plant interactions, the ability for natural enemies to regulate weed populations, and the evolutionary dynamics that drive resistance to weed control measures.
