What is it like when a scientist leaves the Museum and goes out into the field? And why do they spend all their time hunting for flies the rest of us would happily avoid?

Join a Museum scientist to hear about her mission to explore the insect diversity of a variety of countries, ranging from Scotland to Tajikistan. Find out how and why she collects specimens for our collection, including many that carry potent strains of malaria, and the dangers and delights of life in the wild.
