Charles Darwin once wrote, "I am dying by inches, from not having anybody to talk to about insects." I whole-heartedly identify with this sentiment, and I am never happier than when I have the chance to talk to people about entomology. Aside from research, one of my primary passions is outreach and I strive to be active in the communication of my research for both academics and the public.
