Our research focuses on insect ecology in forests and aquatic systems. Past projects have examined aspects of the chemical and behavioural ecology of spruce budworms, leaf miners, and mountain pine beetle, and the diversity of mosquitoes in northern British Columbia. Current projects are examining the disturbance history of the Interior Douglas-fir biogeoclimatic zone in British Columbia, the biodiversity of benthic macroinvertebrates in northern BC streams, and insect biodiversity in Interior wetbelt forests.
