Natural History Museum Hawkmoth Collection
The Natural History Museum (London) recently raised over £150,000 through donations to buy the hawkmoth collection of Dr Jean-Marie Cadiou. Some of these specimens are currently on display at the museum - click here for the press release.
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.
