Name: Chen, Yolanda (Researcher)

Institution: University of Vermont

Description of Expertise:

I am interested in how humans have strongly influenced insect pest evolution, genetics, and ecology by selecting particular strains of crop plants, cultivating crops, and moving them around the world. Our research focuses on how these human-mediated historical ecological, evolutionary, and anthropogenic changes have facilitated insect pest outbreaks in agricultural systems.

Name: Davalos, Andrea (Researcher)

Institution: Cornell University

Description of Expertise:

I am an applied ecologist, broadly focused on community dynamics, especially in the context of plant-herbivore interactions and the spatial and temporal scales at which they occur. My work is motivated by a strong interest in conservation and in the development of tools to restore natural ecosystems. I am particularly interested in addressing issues pertaining to the ecology and management of biological invasions and the factors that drive successful control programs.
