Research interests

I am interested in biological control of insect pests of agricultural importance. Most of my research focuses on exploring strategies to improve the insecticidal activity of microorganism. I have worked on nucleopolyhedroviruses in S. litura and S. exigua.  In Oxford, I studied the impact of bacterial symbionts on performance of fungus in Sitobion avenae.
