Ben Sloniker General TaxonomistGeneral Taxonomist
Ben grew up in the Puget Sound area before earning a BS in Biology from Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA). After a couple of stints on organic farms and time spent in the contract research industry as a project estimator, Ben found his way to Moscow, ID to study forest entomology under Steve Cook. While earning his MS, however, he became distracted by insect taxonomy and jumped at the chance to join EcoAnalysts and practice this skill. In his spare time, Ben enjoys playing outside with his lovely wife, playing with his cat, and playing video games.
