Louise McNamara

My research interests are integrated pest management of insect pests with a focus primarily on arable crops. My research also extends to forestry and horticulture pests. This encompasses best use of insecticides, insecticide resistance, biological pest control, cultural control and biodiversity in an arable farm landscape. I carry out both research and commercial trials. I have a background in biological pest control, the mechanisms underlying the ability of entomopathogens to modulate insect immune responses and the production of secondary metabolites by entomopathogens.
