RESEARCH

Works in Progress
Continuous collaborative research (primarily on the ultrastructural morphology of fly species of forensic importance) with colleagues in the Department of Parsitology, Faculty of Medicine at Chiang Mai University in Thailand.

Ongoing research as part of a multi-million dollar NIH grant entitled, "Environmental Determinants of Malaria in Belize, C.A." in which I have been employed to be used for my taxonomic expertise in this project. Continual project involves investigators consisting of numerous scientists at multiple universities including University of California-Davis and the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, as well as the Ministry of Health in Belize and GeoEcoArc Research Co. in Washington. D.C.

Joint research project with fellow faculty member, Dr. Michael Shipley, to collect and look at the lipid content and profile of an abundant area mayfly, Hexagenia limbata (Ephemeroptera: Ephemeridae). Lipid profiles are being analyzed for eggs, naiads, males, and females. Funding was also acquired for this project.

Beginning work on the ultrastructural morphology of Platypsyllus castoris Ritsema (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) with Dr. Mills and former MSU biology graduate student, Sam Kelly. This study will involve extensive scanning electron microscopy.

In collaboration with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), a long-term venture was begun to help them in biodiversity studies of Lake Tawakoni State Park by working to catalogue the spider fauna that resides in the park, incorporating graduate students from each of my Araneology classes into this research. Work has begun with results from spiders collected from the park by the spring 2009 class on our April 3-5 field trip. A list of species was compiled and submitted to David Riskind, TPWD Natural Resources Program Director and Donna Garde, Superintendent of Lake Tawakoni State Park.

Beginning preliminary work to eventually characterize the insect fauna present at the Dalquest Research Site by examining pitfall trap samples collected from 1999-present.
