Research Interests

Rosemary's main research interest is in the development and application of Integrated Pest Management strategies for horticultural crops. She is also interested in the wider aspects of food production and consumption and in recent years has collaborated with colleagues from a range of disciplines (sociology, geography, statistics, engineering, theatre studies) on projects associated with food and food security. Rosemary is an Academic Lead for the Warwick Global Research Priority (GRP) on Food.


Rosemary trained as an entomologist and has worked on the pest insects of horticultural crops for many years. She is particularly interested in using science to address problems in the horticultural industry. She currently leads the taught Masters courses at Warwick on Sustainable Crop Production and Food Security and within these leads modules on the Challenges of Global Food Security and Organic and Low Input Systems and teaches Integrated Pest Management. She also teaches undergraduates and postgraduates about the concept of ecosystem services and particularly those delivered by land managers. Rosemary is a member of Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment, the Royal Horticultural Society Science Committee, the UK Insecticide Resistance Action Group and the European vegetable Research Institutes Network (EUVRIN).
