Summary

I am responsible for all collection management aspects covering the Recent Bryozoa collection, which consists of the phyla Bryozoa (Ectoprocta) and Kamptozoa (Entoprocta). The collection numbers over 300,000 specimens collected worldwide over four centuries. My research mainly focuses on Bryozoa of the British Isles and the history of natural history, especially bryozoology.
