Title: Research Entomologist
Organization: Michigan State University
Unit: Entomology
Country: United States

I am a researcher, working with Michigan State University since 2002 on the emerald ash borer. EAB is a pest with the potential to essentially eliminate a major hardwood species from the US. The scientific questions are broad, interesting and consequential. A recent focus has been on Atanycolus, a native parasitoid of EAB. For an entomologist, the downside of research is the generally limited focus--one species, one system. So photography is my excuse to explore a wider range of flora/fauna.
