Teaching and Research Interests

I teach liberal arts transfer courses in biology and zoology at SFCC, plus workshops in pesticide 
education for recertification credits and insect classes for K-12 teachers for continuing hours. In addition, I teach a summer workshop at EWU for K-12 teachers to use insects in teaching science.

Research interests include carpenter ant biology and management strategies. Activities concentrate on baits for carpenter ants plus efficacy tests for perimeter sprays and dust formulations. Laboratory research takes place at SFCC and field work includes areas in the Spokane, Puget Sound, and Portland.
