About Michael

Michael is a PhD student in the Gries lab at Simon Fraser University. Michael recently completed his masters with Dr. Gerhard Gries, looking at the life history and chemical ecology of the Strepsipteran (or twisted-wing parasite) Xenos peckii. Photography and videography are often used in Mike’s work. As part of his Master’s project, Michael used videography techniques to document for the first time how male X. peckii emerge from the puparium using their mandibles.
