Expertise

As a museum person I am involved in a variety of activities ranging from research and collection management to database development and creation of exhibitions. My main research interests are echinoderms, with a focus on the phylogeny, nomenclature and systematics of echinoids. This has also lead to my involvement with WoRMS.

Being a palaeontologist with a strong interest in bridging the gap between life and earth sciences, I see WoRMS as invaluable resource for biologists and palaeontologists alike. In addition, I strongly believe that our research results should be easily accessible to a broad public and WoRMS is an ideal tool to disseminate a wide range of data on marine organisms in a structured and fully referenced way.

Apart from WoRMS I am also involved with the Echinoid Directory (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/echinoid-directory/) created by Andrew B. Smith of the NHM London, the primary purpose of which is to provide a taxonomic resource in which the genera and higher taxa of echinoid can be simply and rapidly identified.

Taxonomic term: Echinoidea [WoRMS]
