Department: Life Sciences
Division: LS Invertebrates Division

Specialisms

Amphipoda, Indo-Pacific Biogeography, Invasive Species, Peracarida, Taxonomy

Summary

As a Principal Curator in Charge I work with research and curation staff across non-insect invertebrates. My personal research interest is in amphipod Crustacea taxonomy as a platform to understand broader concepts in systematics, biogeography, invasive species and natural history studies. I work across Indo-Pacific and Atlantic collections, investigating biodiversity, with a current focus on Southern Hemisphere Coastal Talitridae, Falkland Islands biodiversity and Australian Deep Sea Peracarids.
