Maryam is an entomologist who joined the University of Adelaide in 2010. As an early career researcher, her research largely focuses on insect natural enemies and their role in biological control of insect pests. Research on predators and parasitic wasps aims to provide ecological strategies for the enhancement of biological control in agricultural systems through a combination of experimental and theoretical advances.
