Kerry is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. His research focuses on the tribe Macrodactylini (Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae). Kerry completed a generic-level revision of the tribe and is now working on several species-level reviews of little known macrodactyline genera.

Kerry received his M.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1995. His research involved a survey of the white grubs of Phyllophaga species in Wisconsin and analyses of soil type and composition. Kerry received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001. His dissertation was titled “A Phylogenetic World Review of the Macrodactylini”.

Kerry's interests, in addition to the systematics of larval and adult Melolonthinae, are the New World Heteroceridae and Rhipiceridae.
