Lab Alumni

Eric earned his PhD from Penn State in May 2014 and started working for the EPA.

Ian earned his PhD from Penn State in August 2015 and started working as a postdoc in the lab Larry Godfrey at UC-Davis.

I worked as a Research Technologist with Kevin Rice. Primarily, I assisted on several projects to further our understanding of Brown Marmorated Stink Bug ecology by focusing on its behavior in agricultural systems. I like to run.

I am interested in the relationships between agricultural pests and their arthropod predators as well as insect-plant interactions in sustainable farming systems. My research goals are to assess slug population density and movement which could aid farmers in preventing crop damage. I am also interested in investigating plant defense mechanisms against slugs as well as the ecology of fear in slugs.

I earned my PhD in Ecology from Penn State in August 2015, am staying at Penn State as a postdoc. I am interested in the chemical ecology of plant-insect interactions, and especially how plants defend themselves against insect herbivores.

I investigate interactions among invasive species, native plants and arthropods. I’m primarily interested in how plant defenses affect invasive herbivore host-plant choice and fitness.
