The broad emphasis of our research program is to understand relevant interactions between nature, crops, and farmers by revealing synergies and conflicts between pest control, environmental, and socio-economic goals. Focused on a central theme of geography, my research uses a unifies fundamental concepts of arthropod life history strategies with landscape ecology to understand complex communities of pests and beneficial arthropods. We study these basic ecological principles in a framework of contemporary agricultural systems to generate durable solutions for farmers as climate change continues to affect North Carolina and the Southeastern United States. I am initiating research on the CEFS long-term research plots studying arthropod community changes following transition from agricultural lands and am interested in the transition concept given the frequency of crop/home losses due to riparian flooding during extreme weather events in the Eastern Coastal Plain.
