Research interests

Insects aerate the soil, pollinate blossoms, and control insect and plant pests. Many insects, especially beetles, are scavengers, feeding on dead animals and fallen trees, thereby recycling nutrients back into the soil. However, they can cause great crop damage and act as vectors for many diseases. My research interest to develop an understanding of insect biology.
