imit host populations. She uses a grasshopper fungal pathogen model system to examine host-pathogen dynamics at the environmental, host, and pathogen levels. She has been conducting field experiments that examine how the entomopathogen Entomophthora macleodii limits the clear-winged grasshopper (Camnula pellucida), an agriculture/rangeland pest in western Montana since 2010. Her past research indicates that host dynamics, mechanical carriers (ants), and abiotic conditions affect host limitation in this grasshopper/fungal pathogen system. In addition, she has found evidence suggesting climatic warming could reduce fungal pathogen reduction of host numbers. She is currently writing the remainder of her dissertation and building a mechanistic model that predicts E. macleodii outbreaks under future climate change. She will receive her PhD in May, 2014, and she is currently seeking postdoctoral positions.

LOREN RIVERA VEGA is a PhD candidate in entomology with a dual degree in international agriculture and development at Penn State University. She obtained her bachelor's degree in agriculture at the Escuela Agricola Panamericana (Zamorano) in Honduras in 2007. In 2011, she completed her master's program at Ohio State University, working on the comparative transcriptomics of North American and Asian ash (Fraxinus spp.) trees for identification of potential resistance to emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis). During this time she published three first-author journal articles and collaborated on four others. She is currently studying the effect of host plants on the composition of saliva in the cabbage looper (Trichoplusia ni) and its impact on plant defenses. Her research interests focus on understanding the factors that affect plant defenses against insect herbivores and the social impact of scientific advancement in developing countries.
