I am an arachnologist/entomologist/behavioural ecologist with a keen interest in invertebrates.

I am in the final year of my PhD at the University of Auckland where I am working on the evolution, behaviour, and physiology of the endemic New Zealand harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones, Eupnoi, Neopilionidae)

Previously, I was at the University of Florida where I worked on projects with spider-hunting mud dauber wasps (Hymenoptera, Sphecidae) and jumping spiders (Araneae, Salticidae).

I enjoy macro photography and have many opportunities to shoot a wide range of taxa during my fieldwork.
