Taxonomic term: Nematoda [WoRMS]

As an academic and Associate Professor in Veterinary Parasitology, Shokoofeh Shamsi is involved in teaching and research in the field of veterinary parasitology with a particular interest in the parasites of aquatic animals. As a taxonomist Shokoofeh employs a combination of morphological and molecular techniques to address her research questions which has led to the discovery of more than 27 new species of marine and freshwater parasites. Shokoofeh’s work and interest in the taxonomy of marine Nematoda has led to her involvement in the WoRMS database since 2011. Among her contributions in this role was bringing together all the parasite editors and potential new editors in a face to face workshop in 2017 which has led to several great outcomes, such as the development of a parasite database as an outgrowth of WoRMS, recruiting new editors, the addressing of specific issues in regard to parasites’ data as well as working toward a large multi-author publication on parasite diversity. Shokoofeh is keen to take her contribution to WoRMS to the next level by joining the steering committee and working on continuous improvement of the search interfaces to better serve a variety of end-users, increasing the usefulness and reliability of the database as well as encouraging greater engagement of the steering Committee members with editors. Shokoofeh is a member of the council of the Australian Society for Parasitology, a believer in science for public and runs outreach activities and public lectures to improve knowledge and raise awareness about parasites.
