I am currently doing my post-doctoral research at Lund University in Sweden with Dan-Eric Nilsson. For my PhD research, I studied the ultraviolet visual system of the mantis shrimp. This beautiful and violent crustacean has the most sophisticated eye known to science.
I am also afflicted by an overabundance of hobbies. I write about arthropod science on my blog
. I am an amateur photographer, avid hiker, geocacher, fossil hunter, SCUBA diver, and play rugby for the local men's club.
