Dezene Huber is an Associate Professor and is the Canada Research Chair in Forest Entomology and Chemical Ecology in the Ecosystem Science and Management Program and the Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. He completed a B.Sc. in Zoology at the University of Calgary in 1995. His Ph.D. thesis (Simon Fraser University, 1995) was on the responses of several species of bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) to nonhost angiosperm bark volatiles. He has been a faculty member at UNBC since 2005. His research group currently works closely with a large mountain pine beetle system genomics consortium called The Tria Project (www.thetriaproject.ca). Related work at UNBC is specifically focused on genomic aspects of bark beetle overwintering and host colonization physiology. Other work in his lab is focused on tree defenses against insects or pathogens, and applied chemical ecology in stored grain products.
