Specialisms

Diatom systematics and taxonomy, with special focus on naviculoid diatoms Scanning electron microscopy Diatom culturing Postgraduate training

Summary

My research has focused on aspects of diatom biology, particularly benthic diatoms, and has often had a strong taxonomic component. However, unlike many diatomists, I have worked extensively with live diatoms, undertaking ecological studies in a variety of ecosystems, and including experimental studies and life history work. More recently, my interests in diatom wall development led to interesting research collaborations with computer scientists and mathematicians. Having supervised a number of PhD students and Post docs, I am now responsible for the Postgraduate work in the NHM, including our involvement with a number of different Doctoral Training Partnerships.

Introduction

Summary

My research has focused on aspects of diatom biology, particularly benthic diatoms, and has often had a strong taxonomic component. However, unlike many diatomists, I have worked extensively with live diatoms, undertaking ecological studies in a variety of ecosystems, and including experimental studies and life history work. More recently, my interests in diatom wall development led to interesting research collaborations with computer scientists and mathematicians. Having supervised a number of PhD students and Post docs, I am now responsible for the Postgraduate work in the NHM, including our involvement with a number of different Doctoral Training Partnerships.
