Dr. Parrella holds a joint appointment in both entomology and the Department of Plant Sciences on the Davis campus. In 1999, he became associate dean of the Division of Agricultural Sciences in the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences at UC Davis, a position he currently holds.

    Dr. Parrella maintains a teaching/research program in entomology and works in the area of developing IPM strategies for ornamental crops, with an emphasis on biological control. Dr. Parrella is the author of more than 375 publications, with more than 200 of these appearing in trade journals. For 10 years he wrote a monthly column for Greenhouse Manager and GrowerTalks magazines. Dr. Parrella's laboratory has been an incubator for the development of other research/extension personnel currently working in floricultural entomology.
