I am a professor of horticulture and the Statewide Coordinator of the Oregon State University Extension Master Gardener Program.  My areas of expertise include beneficial insects and sustainable pest management in home gardens.

I received a B.S. in biology (1993), a M.S. in entomology (1996) and a Ph.D. in entomology (2001) ~ all from the University of Maryland.  I did a post-doctoral internship at UC Davis in 2001, and was an assistant professor of biology at Fordham University in New York City, from 2002-2007.  I moved to Oregon in 2007.
