Biography:

I am a PhD student in the Smith Insect Biodiversity lab at Purdue University. The taxonomic focus of my dissertation research is the tenebrionid tribe Edrotini with the primarily goals of re-defining Edrotini generic concepts, exploring character evolution, and revising the type genus Edrotes. These (approximately) half dozen charismatic Edrotes species inhabitant sand dunes systems in the southwest United States.
