Dr. Michael Crossley is a new assistant professor and agricultural entomologist who uses ecoinformatics and genomics approaches to advance understanding of insect ecology and evolution in agricultural systems. Dr. Crossley completed his BS (2011), MS (2014), and PhD (2019) in Entomology from University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he worked on landscapelevel movements of soybean aphid and genomics of insecticide resistance in Colorado potato beetle. He completed two years as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Agroecology lab at University of Georgia, where he used molecular gut content analysis to characterize host plant breadth of peanut burrower bug, and ecoinformatics approaches to predict the timing and severity of whitefly and aphid outbreaks in field and vegetable crops.
