Specialisms

Mollusca, Palaeolithic archaeology, Quaternary period, bivalves, climate change, curation, non-marine Gastropoda, palaeoclimatic reconstructions, palaeoecology, river terraces

Summary

I am the curator of Bivalvia and smaller classes of Mollusca (Scaphopoda, Polyplacophora, Monoplacophora etc.). My curatorial responsibilities include the general care, preservation, organisation and loaning of the dry and spirit collections under my care, and the identification, data-basing, preservation, and accession of new material. My research expertise is in non-marine molluscs (terrestrial and freshwater gastropods and bivalves), with a particular interest in using these animals to develop biostratigraphical models and palaeoecological / palaeoclimatic reconstructions. These are crucial for understanding climate change in the recent geological past (the Quaternary Period, spanning the last 2.6 million years), which provides a framework for understanding a diverse range of topics, from human evolution to predicting future climate patterns.
