I have studied the eUS clerids ad nauseum and have moved on to a revisionary project on the World genera of Hydnocerinae. I also have much experience in Scolytidae, Cerambycidae, Nitidulidae, Trogossitidae, Aderidae, Megachilidae, and a lot of familial experience in all major non-Lep orders.
I am interested in most insects I encounter, excluding adult Lepidoptera, and avidly collect most all beetles and Hemiptera, flower-visiting flies and Hymenoptera, Dermaptera, Mantodea and Blattodea.
I got my MS under Mike Thomas (FDACS-DPI-ENT-FSCA), Paul Skelley and Amanda Hodges. My current degree is under Michael Sharkey.
