I'm a biologist with an MSc in palaeobiology from Bristol University who loves talking about science! I work in the Learning Department of the Natural History Museum in London.

Some of the things I have worked in - or like to read about - are (in no particular order): Animal behavior, dinosaurs, pet keeping, learning and education, botany, palynology, aquariums, zoology and physiology... I'm a geeky enthusiast but not an expert in any of these fields!

I also enjoy playing the guitar and have read every single Sherlock Holmes story at least twice...

Hope you enjoy your visit to Ask A Biologist,
