From Autumn 2019 I will the Training Organiser for NatSCA, planning and arranging workshops and seminars for the membership.

I am the Curator of the Cole Museum of Zoology which is the zoology teaching collection of the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading. In my role I have taken the museum through two rounds of accreditation and run an active volunteer group. We are currently moving the collection to a new building and I am writing the new case content. My “day job” is as a Professor of Invertebrate Zoology, teaching undergraduates and undertaking research on mosquito ecology and invertebrate ecotoxicology.
