Synopsis. I joined the Franz Lab at ASU as a M.Sc. student in the Biology program in the Fall of 2015. I previously completed my A.Sc. in Natural Sciences with a concentration in Biology at Baton Rouge Community College, followed by a B.Sc. in Biology with a concentration in Marine Biology at Louisiana State University, where I worked in the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum and the Carlton Lab. My primary research interests involve the systematics and biogeography of the families Cleridae, Trogossitidae, and Melyridae, and of the coccinellid tribe Cephaloscymnini. I am currently collaborating with USDA-APHIS-CPHST Phoenix Lab on a study regarding effects of novel grasshopper and Mormon cricket treatment methodologies on non-target rangeland insects, and am broadly interested in rangeland biodiversity of southwestern North America.
