Faculty Spotlight: Professor Emeritus Dr. Pedro Barbosa
Imagine having to walk across the George Washington Bridge just to find some green- green grass, trees, maybe a couple of flowers. This is what Dr. Pedro Barbosa, Entomology Professor Emeritus of the University of Maryland, did throughout his childhood. Growing up in New York, Dr. Barbosa didn’t see much nature in the city and since his family didn’t own a car, he would frequently walk across the GW Bridge to New Jersey for that purpose.
Dr. Lamp's lab studies insects in a variety of terrestrial and aquatic settings, with applications to agriculture, pest management, freshwater ecology, and biomonitoring. Plant-insect interactions and how species respond to human-induced changes in their environment are a particular focus.
Dr. Lamp has taught at UM for more than 20 years and was awarded the 2009 Distinguished Achievement Award in Teaching from the Entomological Society of America, Eastern Branch, for his mentoring, advising, and engaging teaching techniques.
