Specialisms

Braconidae, Ichneumonidae, curation, taxonomy

Summary

I curate the Ichneumonoidea and Vespoidea (except ants) collections, and am head of the Insects Division. My main area of interest is the Ichneumonidae. Tens of thousands of specimens are being mounted, identified and added to the collection each year. My research interests focus on the taxonomy and diversity of Ichneumonidae, of various subfamilies and various regions but concentrating on Africa and Central America at the moment.

Introduction

Summary

I curate the Ichneumonoidea and Vespoidea (except ants) collections, and am head of the Insects Division. My main area of interest is the Ichneumonidae. Tens of thousands of specimens are being mounted, identified and added to the collection each year. My research interests focus on the taxonomy and diversity of Ichneumonidae, of various subfamilies and various regions but concentrating on Africa and Central America at the moment.
