I am the collection manager for the Purdue Entomological Research Collection. Broadly interested in beetles and natural history collections. The taxonomic focus of PhD dissertation was the tenebrionid tribe Edrotini with the primarily goals of re-defining Edrotini generic concepts, exploring character evolution, and revising the genus Edrotes. These (approximately) half dozen charismatic Edrotes species inhabitant sand dunes systems in the southwest United States.
