Biography:

I'm an entomologist specializing in the Odonata, but I'm interested in all groups. I spent 15 years as Curator of Entomology at the University of Texas at Austin and I'm now Director of Museum Research and Collections at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

I have three different citizen science websites dealing with dragonflies -
OdonataCentral
Migratory Dragonfly Partnership
Pond Watch

I'm also an avid nature photographer specializing in macro/insect photography. Please visit my photography websites -
