 Profile

As a Professor of Entomology, my research and extension programs focus on economically important insects in field crop agroecosystems. I also serve as IPM Coordinator where I oversee a statewide extension IPM program that aims to increase adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) practices. The main emphasis of my research and extension program is to improve insect pest management in field crop systems that (a) increases economic benefit for growers, and (b) promotes environmentally friendly tactics. Improved practices target major field crop industries in South Carolina (corn, grain sorghum, cotton, soybean, and tobacco).

 Research Interests

In addition to addressing clientele needs by conducting research that can be rapidly implemented by growers (e.g., insecticide efficacy and timing, development of economic thresholds, evaluating varieties with resistance to insect pests), my research program also strives to address challenges that require a more long-term focus, such as understanding insect dispersal and crop colonization, determining how transgenic crops impact pest biology, or elucidating the feeding behavior of insect herbivores.

 Extension and Outreach

My extension activities include delivering information to county extension agents, growers, and others involved in agriculture by giving presentations at meetings hosted by county extension agents, grower meetings organized by industry, experiment station field days and tours, certified crop advisor training sessions, crop pest scout schools, county extension agent training sessions, and state commodity meetings. I also update annually the Clemson University Pest Management Handbook with sections on corn, grain sorghum, and tobacco insects, in addition to writing several publications in Land-Grant Press (https://lgpress.clemson.edu/).

As IPM Coordinator, I oversee activities of the SC Extension IPM Program that is funded by a grant from the USDA NIFA Crop Protection and Pest Management Extension Implementation Program. This grant provides partial support to address stakeholder identified needs in Agronomic Crop IPM, Specialty Crop IPM, and Pollinator Health priority areas. The overarching goal of the program is to increase adoption of cost-effective and environmentally sound IPM practices, providing long-term solutions to critical pest management challenges. Coordinated extension programming aims to develop appropriate knowledge and competencies in producers and pest managers across the state, with the purpose of preventing excessive levels of pest damage, minimizing risks to the environment and to people, and reducing the evolution of resistance among target pests to pesticides.
