Research Associate at the University of York and Scientific Associate at the Natural History Musuem, London. Project Lead of the BioAcoustica project creating an online repository and analysis platform for wildlife sounds. I also act as Informatics Advisor to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. Previously I led the extension of the Scratchpads virtual research environment within the e-monocot project at the Natural History Museum, London.
My research interests are divided between the polyneoptera (grasshoppers, cockroaches, praying mantids and related groups) and how technology, both software and hardware, can be used to improve science. Examples include In Situ Acoustic Monitoring of Biodiversity - a project to automatically monitor bush-cricket populations using their songs.
