Cretaceous Asteroids, Fossil Echinoderms, Jurassic Crinoids, Jurassic Ophiuroids, Mesozoic conifers
I am a senior curator with specific responsibilities for the fossil echinoderm collections. I am also manager of the Earth Sciences Invertebrates and Plants 'A' Division and responsible for 3 staff covering the collections of Bryozoa, Corals, Cephalopods, Brachiopods and other smaller invertebrate groups.
I actively research fossil echinoderms and plants. I am currently working on a wide range of fossil echinoderms projects, particularly Cretaceous Moroccan Asteroids, Cretaceous and Jurassic British Ophiuroids, British Jurassic Crinoids, Lower Jurassic echinoderms from Yorkshire and Silurian Canadian Edrioasteroids.
I also have an interest in museology with particular interests in the promotion of curatorial expertise within the heritage sector as well as an active committee member of the Geological Curators Group.
