Personal profile


Prof Phil Taylor is the founding Head of Applied BioSciences, a research and research training enterprise that is based on core principles of integrating the needs and priorities of industry with university-based research, and addressing these needs through partnership.

Research interests

I am primarily interested in sustainable and economic management of insect pests of horticulture. Bridging between basic and applied science, I am able to offer new perspectives and novel solutions. Over the past decade, my focus has been on improving existing tools, and developing new tools, for the control of Queensland fruit fly and other pest fruit flies in Australia. Specific areas of interest have included developing a stronger scientific foundation for Sterile Insect Technique programs and developing new lures that can be used for Male Annihilation Technique and detection of diverse fruit fly species.
