He has worked extensively in Latin America since 1994, doing both field research and conducting field workshops for training local entomologists in rapid biodiversity survey techniques. Dr. Spector also serves as an adjunct assistant professor at Columbia University, where he teaches conservation biology to undergraduates. He earned his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut.
