I'm a lab technician and aquatic ecologist at Texas State University specializing in benthic macroinvertebrates, aquatic macrophytes, water chemistry and nutrient cycling, spring-fed rivers, and ecosystem metabolism. While I work in aquatic systems, I also have a major appreciation for terrestrial plants and insects (Hemipterans in particular).

I appreciate the scientific aspect of iNaturalist, but I'm honestly primarily using this to help me catalogue, remember, and learn about local taxa. I would love to find some semblance of community in the Central Texas area that's also enthusiastic about plants and insects, so feel free to reach out to me!

If you live in or frequent Texas, please join The Hemiptera of Texas project!
