This is an introductory-level entomology course for both undergraduate and graduate students, covering various entomological topics including basic classification, internal/external morphology, ecology, IPM, etc., as well as collecting, curating, and identifying specimens for an insect collection. My responsibilities and duties include designing and delivering original lectures, leading laboratory exercises and field trips, giving exams and grading.

In Media

Some of my publications have received significant media recognition across international outlets, including the BBC, Science AAAS, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Forbes. At a time when taxonomy is not well-funded and considered rather "light" compared to other branches of science, I believe it is extremely important to promote the value of taxonomic work to the lay audience.
