I am interested in the emerging field of bioinformatics, particularly the informatics of taxonomy and nomenclature. I also study the orthopteroid insect orders (polyneoptera), in particular the stick and leaf insects (phasmida) and the cockroaches (blattodea).

I am currently working at the Natural History Museum, London developing the Scratchpads project within e-monocot and ViBRANT, working on a project to identify grasshoppers by their songs, and a number of projects relating to digitisation, open access, open hardware and informatics.
