Her research employs eclectic methods ranging from field experiments to meta-analysis, and is oriented to practical application through dialogue with farmers, beekeepers, conservation organizations, and policy makers. Her interests include integrated pest management, biological control, soil conservation, ecotoxicology (esp. neonicotinoid insecticides), and socio-ecological dynamics of pesticide use.
