   Research interests: I’m interested in utilizing molecular techniques to identify natural enemies
   of the Lebbeck mealybug, Nipaecoccus viridis. I am also investigating how the presence of ants
   affects the diversity of natural enemies present and potentially feeding on this pest in the field.
