Biography

As a Research Scientist, Tyler is pursuing many entomological passions including modeling the effect of beneficial insects on cereal aphid populations and building the model into an aphid scouting app, infecting wheat and Camelina with aster yellows through leafhopper vectors, working with wheat midge and its parasitoids, and studying landscape effects on and economic threshold of flea beetles. Tyler’s future holds expanded projects on aphids, aster leafhoppers, wheat midge, flea beetles  and emerging insect pests in field crops of the Canadian Prairies.
