The overall goal of the Michel Lab is to understand how insect pests adapt to rapidly changing selection pressures in agroecosystems to important crops or resistance to management tactics. A lack of understanding of how insect pests adapt, limits the effectiveness and sustainability of insect management, and threatens agricultural production. Specifically, his research focuses on characterilizing the genetic basis for insect pest adaptaion and how these adaptive traits spread across the landscape.
