I am a recent graduate of the Entomology Department at Virginia Tech, where I earned my PhD in millipede systematics. My research focuses on the flat-backed millipedes in the order Polydesmida, and the family Parajulidae as well. If you need help identifying millipedes, let me know! I would love to receive any millipede specimens you're willing to collect, especially the genera Pseudopolydesmus or Nannaria. I am also writing a guide to the millipedes of Ohio and am happy to identify any spottings from the state, as well as to receive any specimens you might collect.

If you're interested in sending me millipedes you find, please let me know! You can send them alive or preserved in alcohol (95% ethanol if possible), though live millipedes are preferred. To find millipedes, look under leaf litter, logs, and rocks, or go out at night with a UV flashlight--you may see some that fluoresce!
