I am an insect systematist that revises and describes carabid beetle taxa. The purpose of this endeavor is to characterize biodiversity, and to identify natural areas of endemism that require conservation. I am curator of the Cornell University Insect Collection, and therefore responsible for its overall administration, its development, and enhancement. The CUIC is the largest arthropod collection at a land-grant institution, comprising over 7 million specimens representing insects and mites from all biogeographic regions of the World.
