I primarily study the evolution and speciation of insects, with particular interest for galling wasps on oaks and their parasites. I am interested in how interspecific interactions and ecological niche saturation function to drive insect biodiversity. My current work is focused on collecting genetic data for oak gall wasps and their parasitoids, kleptoparasites, and hyperparasites from extremely broad geographic locations. The details for this work, and information for submitting samples, can be found here: https://www.inaturalist.org/posts/83434-cynipini-larval-sequencing-project
