Curator qualifications


I am a Research Entomologist at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, USA, where I am working on the phylogeny, taxonomy, and biodiversity of Apioceridae, Asilidae, Mydidae (Insecta: Diptera).

Curation scope
I will foremost curate Apioceridae, Asilidae, and Mydidae flies from around the world as this is my main expertise. I will also look through other Asiloidea and "orthorrhaphous" Brachycera fly taxa.
