We connect lab and field research to understand mechanisms of ecological and organismal function across multiple levels. We work closely with other natural scientists, social scientists, government agencies, community organizations, and farmers around the world to to link our research to real-world applications.

Field Adventures

In the field, we study grassland biogeochemistry, insect ecology, and human-insect interactions in communities around the world.

Lab Discoveries

In our lab, we measure nutrients in soil, plants, and insects, study insect behavior and nutrition, and work to uncover the physiology of swarms.
