His research on insecticide and acaricide resistance at BCS covered more than a dozen invertebrate pests and many classes of insecticides. He and his co-authors published many papers on insecticide resistance and its mechanisms and management, including the first case of complete maternal inheritance of resistance to an acaricide as well as the very first paper on a ryanodine receptor target-site mutation in diamondback moth resistant to the newly introduced class of diamide insecticides. Dr. Nauen has been a long-time and very active member of the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC), serving in a variety of capacities, including chair from 2008-2013. As IRAC chair, he has expanded company membership and its global influence. He also serves as secretary of the German Expert Committee on Pesticide Resistance and is a member of the EPPO Resistance Panel.
Dr. Nauen has been one of the preeminent scientists in the world on the subject of insecticide resistance, and he organized and chaired several symposia at international conferences and gave numerous invited and keynote presentations in all sorts of meetings, conferences, and symposia. He is a fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, serves on several editorial boards, and is an executive editor of the well-known international journal Pest Management Science.
