Been growing orchids for about a decade. Like miniatures and odd botanical species. Specialize in Oberonia and Hippeophyllum. Hold an appointment as "Visiting Research Scholar" with the Huntington Botanical Garden. Occasionally consult for AOS SIT on Oberonia IDs, and am a member of AOS Research and Conservation committee. Doing research into Oberonia biodiversity and systematics, using a lot of light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for that. My day-job is curator of malacology (mollusks) at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, where I also run the SEM facility. Botanical publications and talks are listed under http://www.vetigastropoda.com/orchids/index.html though needs an update.
