Biography:

I'm a faculty member in the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University and the Curator of the department's insect collection (ca. 2.4 million specimens). I am a specialist in the taxonomy/systematics of the insect superorder Neuropterida, which consists of the orders Neuroptera, Megaloptera and Raphidioptera.

For collectors... I am interested in exchanges and gifts of properly mounted and labelled neuropterid specimens from anywhere in the world to further develop this portion of the Texas A&M University Insect Collection. If you would like to exchange or gift material, please contact me.
