Hello! I'm a graduate student, biodiversity infomatician, Wikipedia editor, and all around nice guy. My research interests are in taxonomic informatics, particularly how Linnaean taxonomy can work with cladistic models of species organization. I'm a graduate student at the Guralnick lab at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I like cats.
