About





Brian Cutting is an entomologist and photography enthusiast based in Hamilton, New Zealand.  

Brian has a Bachelors degree in biology, and a Master's degree in Entomology, both from the University of Delaware where he studied under Dr. Douglas Tallamy.  Here he developed an interest in making human dominated landscapes useful to wildlife.  His thesis research focused on how monarch butterfly populations are affected by butterfly gardens.

In addition to his own research, Brian worked on several research projects evaluating insect use of native and alien plants.  He has led projects quantifying wildlife use of riparian corridors, and surveying wild bird populations for West Nile Virus.  Brian worked at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA gaining experience with integrated pest management and natural areas management.  He also worked on biological control of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug at the USDA Beneficial Insects Introduction Research Unit in Newark, Delaware.

  In 2013, Brian moved to New Zealand where he works on various aspects of pollination research.
