CHRIS PHILIPS grew up in north Texas and completed his BS in entomology from the University of Delaware in 2007. He graduated with his master's degree in entomology from the University of Delaware in 2010, where he worked with Dr. Douglas Tallamy investigating the impact of nonnative plants on native insect communities. In 2010, he began his PhD in the Department of Entomology at Virginia Tech, where he was co-advised by Drs. Thomas Kuhar (vegetable entomologist) and Ames Herbert (field crops entomologist). Working with these two diverse programs enabled him to gain a wide variety of experience in pest management decision-making and control strategies. In August, 2013 Chris successfully defended his dissertation, which focused on investigating the efficacy of ecologically-based pest management in different agroecosystems. He recently accepted a postdoctoral research associate position at Washington State University working with Dr. Bill Snyder to investigate the ecological basis of natural pest control in organic farming systems. His research interests focus on agricultural land management practices and their impact on insect ecology. He is particularly interested in how plant-provided resources and habitat heterogeneity influence predator communities and the impact of predator-predator interactions on pest suppression in agroecosystems. Ultimately, he hopes to work in academia and interface with industry to conduct applied and theoretical research that addresses agricultural and land management issues to improve our ability to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.

ERICA KISTNER is a fifth year PhD candidate at the University of Notre Dame (Department of Biological Sciences). As part of her broad interests in population and disease ecology, her dissertation research investigates the conditions in which pathogens may l
