Insect Division Collection Manager
Office Location(s): 2053 Ruthven Museums
Herding dead insects. Actually, what I do is make sure that our collections are properly housed, organized, labeled, pest-free, and accessible. Within that range of activities are included - fulfilling loan requests, advising students and professors on proper shipping and permitting issues, photographing specimens, working on the ethanol move plan to Varsity Drive, answering insect/pest identification questions, dealing with specimen database issues, shipping specimens, and helping graduate students with occasional questions and problem-solving.
Aside from my long-standing fascination with dragonflies and work with the Michigan Odonata Survey, I have published on sphecid wasp behavior, state distribution records for various insect groups, and retain the same sense of wonder about insects that I had as a teenager.
