About me


I am a butterfly systematist and my research interests are oriented around Neotropical butterfly systematics in the broadest sense. In particular, my real passion lies in understanding species-level diversity of Neotropical butterflies, with an emphasis on some of the poorly studied butterfly groups and unexplored areas. I utilize both molecular and morphological data to generate taxonomic and phylogenetic hypotheses in order to provide foundational information for future research.
