PhD, Matt Grieshop

I am a PhD student in Matthew Grieshop's lab, interested in soil ecology and biological control. I obtained my BS in Biology from University of Minnesota Duluth and MS in Entomology from Cornell University. My research focuses on the ecology of manmade decay environments such as compost and the interactions of soil microarthropod communities with insect pests and plant pathogens. I also produce educational clay animation videos on soil ecology and entomology topics.
