Research

Our research focuses on the evolutionary ecology, chemical ecology and community dynamics of plant-insect interactions.   We use a combination of controlled laboratory assays and manipulative field experiments to examine the relationships between plants, pollinators and herbivores. Bumble bees are our model pollinators because they play an important role in the reproduction of native wildflowers, agricultural crops and invasive plants.
