National Museum Wales, Cardiff
Hi, I'm the Curator of Vertebrates (things with backbones). My main interest is in birds and mammals. As these are the largest vertebrate groups in the UK this tends to be the focus of my work but species from farther afield certainly don't get ignored. My interests also extend to invertebrates - particularly butterflies and moths.
My job is more involved with raising public awareness on various biodiversity and conservation issues than research. This means I tend to be more involved with creating displays in the museum. It also gets me out and about with giving talks to various local groups and taking specimens to various events and conferences.
