I am a biologist in Illinois where I study the evolutionary history of various groups of insects. Photography is an aesthetic complement to my scientific work.

I blog about photography at <a href="http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/compound-eye/">Scientific American</a> and about entomology at <a href="http://myrmecos.net">Myrmecos</a>. I am also a founding instructor of <a href="http://bugshot.net/">BugShot Insect Photography Workshops</a>.
