Abstract

Margarita López-Uribe, Ph.D., explains how the origins and expansion of agriculture has facilitated the movements of pest and pathogens of crop plants as they have been established around the world.

López-Uribe is the Lorenzo L. Langstroth Early Career Professor and Associate Professor of Entomology at Penn State University. She is also an extension specialist in pollinator health for Penn State Extension. López-Uribe received her bachelor’s in biology from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), her master’s in genetics and evolution from Universidade Federal de São Carlos (Brazil), and her doctorate in entomology from Cornell University (USA). She was an NSF postdoctoral research fellow at NC State University before joining Penn State. López-Uribe was awarded the ESA Early Career Research Award in 2018 and most recently received an NSF CAREER award. As an evolutionary ecologist, she is broadly interested in understanding how artificial selection and management shape bee health and the long-term persistence of their populations in agricultural areas.
