Gabriel Patrick Hughes


  • Ph.D Student
Whistler Hall Room 211

Gabriel Hughes is a Ph.D. Candidate studying the chemical ecology of wood-boring beetles. He received a B.S. in Integrative Biology from Brigham Young University in 2008, and a M.S. in Entomology at Purdue University in 2011.

Much of Gabriel's research involves the volatile and contact pheromones of longhorned beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae). He has also studied the invasion of urban forests by the emerald ash borer (Agirlus planipennis), and the chemically-mediated host-colonization behavior of the peach bark beetle (Phloeotribus liminaris).
