I study winter moth (Operophtera brumata), an invasive, defoliating geometrid of eastern Massachusetts. It was introduced to the Boston and Cape Cod area about a decade ago. My research considers different sources of mortality on this non-native insect and the population-level impacts of these mortality factors. I am focusing primarily on pupal predation by large invertebrates (e.g. Carabid and Staphylinid beetles) and small mammals (e.g. shrews).
