Specialist hard tissue identification (for UK and international law enforcement); collections evaluation and report writing for UK/international museums and other organizations; development of NHM’s National Collection of Cetacea through fieldwork, collections-based research, taxonomic revision and collaborative studies. Science lead for Hintze Hall redevelopment (redisplay of 'Hope' the blue whale) 2014-2017, Science lead for 'Whales: Beneath the Surface' temporary exhibition 2015-2017. Expertise in identification and analysis of faunal remains (vertebrate/archaeozoology), human osteology, skeletal pathology, osteometry and palaeobiology. Special interests in collection management, environmental management of vertebrate collections, use of the Internet by museums for 'virtual' access, creation of 'virtual' specimens using micro-CT/3D/surface-scanning data, creation of ‘virtual’ collections using novel technologies and remote electronic access to collections data; development of techniques for evaluating and accessing genetic resources held in museum research collections; development of destructive and invasive sampling protocols; public outreach; art/science collaboration; investigation into the effects of different preparation techniques on vertebrate specimens. Currently jointly investigating sub-lethal stressors to large cetaceans using stable isotopes and Museum collections; genetic diversity in large cetaceans using Museum collections and using ancient DNA techniques to address issues of conservation biology.
