Passionate about tiny insects, and always up for a challenge, my current research examines the taxonomy and systematics of Psyllaephagus, a drastically understudied and unresolved genus of wasps which are the primary parasitoids of psyllids (another beautiful group of tiny insects). With support from the UofA, CSIRO, Royal Society of South Australia, ABRS, the Field Naturalists Society of South Australia and the Austin Lab Group, I am privileged to be able to work with an incredible group (both insect and human!), pursuing my passion and interest in entomology and biological science.
