    Office location: Upham 309
    Phone: (262) 472-5132


    I currently serve as the chair of the Biology Department.  In this capacity I am the primary person that helps Biology students and I represent the Biology faculty.

    I am a Wisconsin native, growing up in the central sands of WI, where I became interested in Biology.  I attended the UW-Madison, where I got my PhD in Entomology (the study of insects).

    Research Interests: Insect biodiversity, their natural history and identification.   My primary work is focused on a large group of scarab beetles called the Macrodactylini.  I also have interests in several other beetle, true bug and fly groups.  Students in my lab have also worked on conservation and restoration ecology projects involving insects.
