Dr. Kyle Bobiwash

University of Manitoba, Office of the Chief Science Advisor
Dr. Kyle Bobiwash is Assistant Professor and Indigenous Scholar in the Department of Entomology, in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, at the University of Manitoba. He has worked in a number of agricultural systems including vineyards, wild lowbush blueberry farms, and cultivated highbush blueberry fields. His current research focuses on understanding the ecology of beneficial insects in agro-ecosystems and the greater landscape, to better characterize the landscape and resources utilized by insects to understand how land management might affect insect community composition and ecosystem service delivery. His previous research has ranged from analyses to evaluating the pollination efficiency of new species of managed pollinators and investigating the attractiveness and relative importance of crop and non-crop floral resources to pollinators. Outside of science, Dr. Bobiwash was a member of the Aboriginal Reconciliation Council charged with developing Simon Fraser University’s Indigenous Reconciliation strategy “Walk This Path with Us.”
