Notes from my experience breeding and studying a wide variety of different invertebrates.

Phasmid on Dutch TV
"A nervous Suzanne De Jong arrived yesterday at Innisfail's Australian Insect Farm, near Cairns, where a 35cm giant walker stick insect, three giant burrowing cockroaches and a 16cm spiny leaf insect awaited."
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
