View Curriculum Vitae
I received the B.S. degree (with distinction) in Zoology from Iowa State University in 1971, and the Ph.D. in Entomology (Acarology) from Cornell University in 1981. I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. I have subsequently served as a visiting professor at Ohio State University (Acarology Summer Program), and the Escuela Nacional de Ciencias Biologicas, Instituto Politecnico Nacional, Mexico City, Mexico.
My research focuses on the evolution and ecology of parasitic and commensal mites and vertebrate, invertebrate, plant and fungal hosts. Taxonomic foci include the Astigmatid and Dermanyssoid mites. Geographic foci have included Southeast Asia, Madagascar, East Africa and other regions.
