Nico Franz

Arizona State University
Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Ecology and Biocollections Director
Tempe, AZ
I am an evolutionary biologist and insect systematist who specializes in the megadiverse plant-feeding lineage of weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea), estimated to include 220,000 species globally. My research program also focuses on developing innovative biocollections infrastructure and biodiversity data science services; including AI- and logic-enabled tools to integrate evolving systematic knowledge robustly, equitably, and at scale. At Arizona State University (ASU), I am the principal investigator of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) Biorepository and the iDigBio Symbiota Support Hub, which sustains more than 1,400 collections and 70 million global occurrence records. I serve as curator of insects and direct the ASU Biocollections and Biodiversity Knowledge Integration Center (BioKIC).
