Currently, my main focus is teaching. One of my research goals is to develop (and later implement) methods that bring hands-on science experiments/demonstrations to high enrollment (150 + student) classes at CSU. This includes both traditionally taught and online course development.
I have broad research interests with respect to pest insect species in Colorado. My main focus over the past 10 years has been on insect pests of horticultural commodity crops. However, with the recent explosion in bed bugs around the state some of my focus has shifted toward urban entomology and the Cimex species pest complex.
