Paul G Fields
Dr. Paul Fields received his BSc (Biology) from McMaster University in 1980 and his PhD (Biology) from Université Laval in 1987. His doctoral thesis examined the overwintering adaptations of two moths. He was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Ottawa, examining plant-derived phototoxins and their effects on insects.
Since 1988, he has been working as a Research Scientist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Winnipeg on the ecophysiology of stored-product insects. There are three main areas to his research program: extreme temperatures, natural products and insect behaviour. He has done extensive work on the use of low temperature to control stored product insects.
