My research interests are concentrated in two areas; the taxonomy and systematics of aquatic insects, primarily caddisflies, with emphasis on the microcaddisflies and in the assessment of streams impacted in various ways. Much of my recent caddisflies studies are centered in the southeastern United States, with occasional projects in Central and South America. Much of my recent stream assessment work has been concerned with the impact of mine-acid drainage on aquatic systems.
