I am one of the few natives within the Department of Entomology, growing up in a small town outside of Urbana, IL.  I received my B.S. in Biology from Millikin University in Decatur, IL in 1993.  I completed my Master's Degree in Entomology in 1996 in Dr. Hugh Robertson's laboratory.  My Master's project focused on debunking one insect "ancient DNA" claim among the many that were circulating in the early 1990s. 

I then took the position of Research Specialist in Dr. Robertson's lab, and I continue to supervise undergraduate students, assist graduate students, and complete other small projects.  Currently, I am involved in several insect genome projects.
