I am an entomologist and biological recorder. I carry out entomological surveys across a wide range of terrestrial invertebrate groups, provide biodiversity data management support, and teach wildlife identification and recording for organisations including the Field Studies Council, Wildlife Trusts and for the MSc in Biological Recording at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am a Research Fellow at the UK Biological Records Centre within CEH. Previous posts have been with Hampshire Wildlife Trust, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Environmental Records Centre and the iSpot project at The Open University. As a volunteer, I am county moth recorder for Berkshire and run the national recording scheme for Soldierflies and allies.
