Kaitiaki Taonga Collection Manager Sciences, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongawera. Responsible for the management of the Te Papa Herbarium (WELT).

My main natural environment interest is botany. Most of my botanical experience has been with forest plant communities nation wide, mostly associated with monitoring biodiversity and carbon stocks. Interested in patterns of succession and restoration ecology and have experience in this area with wetland and coastal sites. Associated with this is my interest in naturalised plants, their spread, and impact on indigenous plant communities. My current collection focus is in alpine plant communities as part of research support for the Myosotis program with Heidi Meudt.

Learning more about New Zealand vertebrates and invertebrates when I find the time.
