Entomological Society of America names winners of Monsanto student travel and research awards
Date:9/11/2013

By high school, he knew that he wanted to be a biologist. Rob graduated with his bachelor's degree in biology cum laude from Kalamazoo College in 2006. His senior thesis centered around finding indicator arthropod species of overall invertebrate richness in Michigan old field sites. Since college, Rob has been highly interested in questions of arthropod diversity as well as chemical ecology. After graduating, Rob pursued a research internship at the Archbold Biological Station, dealing with how grazing affects the diversity and abundance of macroinvertebrate communities in Florida wetlands. He graduated with his MS in ecology, evolutionary biology, and systematics from the University of Munich in Germany in 2009. Rob's thesis focused on the ecological, genetic, and chemical divergence between two closely related species of ants. In 2010, Rob began a PhD program at Michigan State University in the Department of Entomology. His dissertation focuses on the integrated pest management of the asparagus miner, a pest that poses serious problems for the asparagus industry. Using a combination of different approaches, including conservation biological control, chemical and ecological analysis, as well as the development of a degree-day model, Rob is attempting to develop alternative approaches to controlling the asparagus miner. He is expected to graduate in May, 2014 and is actively looking for a postdoctoral position in academia or government. While in his program, Rob has developed a passion for outreach to the public and educating the next generation of scientists. Rob had the privilege of marrying his best friend over a year ago, and in his free time he is an avid photographer and hiker.
