My studies focus on beetle systematics of the family Aderidae (Tenebrionoidea). I am interesting in revising the subfamilial and tribal classification within this family utilizing both morphological and molecular data. I am also interested in the evolution of termitophilous habits within the genus Megaxenus Lawrence. I particularly enjoy scientific illustration and investigating different microsopy techniques. I am also passtionate about teaching and outreach education.
When I'm not studying beetles, you can find me baking, fostering cats, performing improvisational comedy, or hiking.
