Biography:

I'm am a doctoral student in Entomology at North Carolina State University. I am interested in all flies. My Master's project involved morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies of horse flies, especially the tribe Diachlorini. I have continued research interests in the biodiversity and evolution of horse flies.

I am interested in getting/borrowing/trading for specimens of Tabanidae preserved in ethanol or frozen, particularly the smaller North American genera, e.g. Anacimas, Merycomyia, Microtabanus, and others, and odd species of the more diverse genera such as Chrysops hyalinus, Silvius philipi, Tabanus cymatophorus, Tabanus daedalus, Tabanus dietrichi, Tabanus fratellus, Tabanus venustus, etc. If you contact me, I would love to identify non-Nearctic Tabanidae.
