My pronouns are:
I am passionate about the natural world and love everything it has to offer, from orchids to lizards from moths to pangolins. I am very fortunate to work at the Natural History Museum London whilst also studying tropical insects.
As an Invertebrate Research assistant on the DToL project, I spend a lot of my time looking at insects and other invertebrates (marine and terrestrial). This includes collecting specimens in the field and assisting in their identification, preservation and preparation for DNA barcoding and whole genome sequencing.
