Hi, My Name Is Cristian Martínez  I'm a Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois at Chicago.   I'm currently working in Dr. David Wise's lab where I’m studying the arthropod community ecology in leaf litter.  My dissertation work focuses on forest land management history, leaf litter qualities and what effect both have on the arthropod community.  My current work is on the arthropod community ecology, but I'm also interested in invasive species, beetle systematics, and varying taxonomic resolution in ecology projects.
