Appointments: Postdoctoral Fellow, Namib Desert Res. Station, Namibia (Invertebrate Ecology), 11/19782/1980; Postdoctoral Fellow, Texas A&M Univ. (Medfly Biological Control), 5/198011/1981; Assistant Professor, Dept. Entomology, Texas A&M University, College Station, 11/19813/1987; Associate Professor, Dept.

Research Interests: My primary research interests are in the taxonomy and systematics of the hymenopteran family, Braconidae. However, I did extensive research in the mid- to late-1980s on the taxonomy, systematics, diversity, and behavior of Namibian Solifugae and am excited by the prospect of rejuvenating a research program on African solifuges.
