I am interested in exploring how environmental variation and biotic stressors affect physiological and behavioral response of microbes, plants, and insects, as well as the implications at the population and community levels. My research integrates the following fields:

Ecology and Evolution Microbiomes/Viromes under Environmental Extremes

Applications: Bioremediation

Interactive Stressors -abiotic and biotic.

Extreme Temperatures-Pollution-Pathogenic Infections

Behavioral Ecology: Foraging-Experimental Methods

Behavioral ecology: trial-error dynamics

Global Change Effects on Chemical Biocommunication

Conservation Physiology

Ecotoxicology and Management of Species
