Curatorial and identification duties include all of the scale insects (Homoptera: suborder Coccinea) and the whiteflies (Homoptera:Aleyrodidae). These collections of the FSCA are primarily on microscope slides, and are available for loan to qualified researchers. Type slides included in the collection will be listed on another page.

My primary research interests deal with taxonomy of the "crawler" life stage of soft scales and construction of photo-recognition keys for field agents and laymen.

Other interests include the distribution of scale insects in Florida, neighboring land areas, and the Caribbean. Scale insects and whiteflies as regulatory problems. Scale insect-ant-parasitoid interactions.
