Ph.D. Student – Evolutionary Biology
B.Sc. 2013, Biology & Ecology (with Minor in Entomology) – Pennsylvania State University
Synopsis. I joined the Franz Lab at ASU as a Ph.D. student in the Evolutionary Biology program in the Fall of 2013. I previously completed my B.Sc. with a Minor in Entomology at Pennsylvania State University where I worked in the Frost Entomological Museum and in the Deans Lab. My research interests are centered on the biodiversity and systematics of weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), focusing on the subfamily Conoderinae in the Neotropics. Much remains unknown about conoderine biology, the relationships of genera, and their behavior, which includes several under-explored mimicry complexes.
