Chemical mediation of plant-herbivore interactions

My group investigates the role of chemistry in mediating interactions between plants and insect herbivores. We study how plant defenses influence insect performance, and how insects and their associated microbes circumvent defenses by detoxification. Currently, we are placing special emphasis on researching how microbes influence the success of bark beetles in colonizing their host trees.
