I am an entomological research scientist with a broad background in agriculture. My research experience is in plant quarantine, biological control and chemical ecology.


I specifically study biological control agents for the management of invasive alien pests. I have good experience of the biological control of spider mites, thrips and moths.


I have also worked on surveying and screening natural enemies as well as their mass production and field release technologies.


I have rich experience in extraction and identification of sex pheromones of pest, and developing lure products.


I have worked for CABI since 2012 as a project scientist, my role is implementing biocontrol research projects together with international colleagues and delivering higher quality research results.
