I am a research scientist at the Natural History Museum, London. My official title is 'cybertaxonomist,' which means I apply computer technology and the web to the study of biodiversity. When I am not doing this, I work on the evolution of parasitic lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera). You can track my recent research interests and activities through my blog, publications, presentations, reading list, calendar, and twitter feed:
