I am an aspiring Forensic Entomologist and an avid insect enthusiast. I majored in Biology at Case Western Reserve University (Class of 2022). At Case, I have collected and reared insects (specifically Cabbage White butterflies) as part of a research project aimed at understanding how urbanization affects their development.

Currently I am working with numerous species as part of an agriculture science pesticide lab, including lepidopterans, hemipterans, coleopterans, thysanopterans, and orthopterans, as well as various nematodes and fungi.

Additionally, I have been collecting and preserving specimens for my own personal collection.

I am quite a novice when it comes to identifying the insects (and other organisms) I come across, so please correct me when I am in error.

Also, apologies for the poor photo quality, as I am lacking any camera other than my aging phone...
