RESEARCH INTERESTS:

  • Biological Control; Natural enemies; Forest Entomology

      Our research mainly focuses on the biological control of forest insect pests by using natural enemies, including field survey of natural enemies, evaluation of natural enemies on host population regulation, parasitoid-host interactions, competition among parasitoids, environmental adaptation, artificial rearing and release of parasitoids, etc. The studied objectives involved emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, Asian long-horned beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky), spotted lanternfly Lycorma delicatula (White), fall webworm Hyphantria cunea (Drury), oak long-horned beetle Massicus raddei (Blessig), pine sawyer Monochamus alternatus Hope, etc.
