Research Interests
I am an evolutionary biologist. I am interested in patterns and processes of evolution, phylogenetic relationships, patterns of diversity, speciation, and sexual selection. My area of specialization is the systematics, phylogeny, biodiversity, and biogeography of the Coleoptera, specifically the "megadiverse" superfamily Scarabaeoidea that includes over 35,000 described species. My phylogenetics research integrates molecular and morphological methods. I also conduct faunistic research on scarab beetles (nationally and internationally), ecological research on dung beetles and carrion beetles, and conservation research on the endangered American Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus americanus).
