I study how Australian insects find, accept and utilise native plants. I am particularly interested in the interactions of psylloids (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) with Eucalyptus in native and man-made forests. I am also interested in basic biology, phenotypic plasticity, biogeography and intra-specific communication. I am a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society of London and Mackerras Medal winner
