IPM Program Manager; Assistant Specialist in Entomology
I serve as IPM Program Manager and Associate Director of the Arizona Pest Management Center (APMC). I work with the IPM Coordinating Committee, an interdisciplinary advisory board made up of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) faculty and external stakeholders, to identify statewide Integrated Pest Management (IPM) research and education priorities. With IPM Coordinator, Dr. Peter Ellsworth, I manage and support planning, evaluation, and reporting for UA IPM programs serving agriculture, urban communities and natural areas. The goal of the APMC is to support CALS faculty in their efforts to develop and deliver outstanding IPM programs that address the needs of Arizona’s citizens.
My expertise is in entomology and the evaluation of IPM adoption, implementation and impact.
