He is currently conducting research on the species diversity and abundance of dragonflies and damselflies within New Orleans City Park. New Orleans, especially, can be home to many diverse ecosystems and the ecosystems within urban environments is what has shaped my research interests.
He is planning to do a more intensive study on how dragonflies and damselflies interact within urban ecosystems in his graduate program. Class is located in the Lath House/Garden Study Center, New Orleans Botanical Garden in City Park
