Folsom Lake College, Department of Biology, Bohart Museum of Entomology, UC Davis, Museum Scientist
I am an entomologist and evolutionary biologist whose Ph.D. work at the University of California, Davis was on tenebrionid beetles. I currently teach full time at Folsom Lake College. I teach BIOL 420 Zoology, BIOL 300 Introduction to Biology, BIOL 100 Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, BIOL 386, BIOL 380, BIOL 388, BIOL 382 which are natural history field courses and BIOL 350 Environmental Biology. I have taught at Sonoma State University BIOL 115 - Introduction to biology, BIOL 120A and 120B - Critical thinking in the sciences, SCI 120- Watershed Year, BIOL 224 - Human physiology, and BIOL 323 - Entomology in the Biology Department at Sonoma State University and also taught at Sacramento City College a variety of courses ranging from Anatomy & Physiology, Contemporary Biology, and Environmental Biology. I received my B.S. in Evolution and Ecology and my M.S. and Ph.D. in Entomology from U.C. Davis. I have organized several symposia and given talks on beetles for the national meeting of the Entomological Society of America. My photographs of insects have been included in several biology textbooks. I also recently authored a children's book on the California dogface butterfly through the Bohart Museum of Entomology at U.C. Davis. I continue to work/volunteer at the Bohart Museum of Entomology in my time off from teaching.
