I am a medical entomologist experienced in the identification of ticks and mosquitoes. I have been involved in collecting and identifying ticks and mosquitoes from across the UK and Europe, as well as running the UK national recording schemes for ticks and mosquitoes. I currently research ticks and tick-borne bacteria in the United States.

My main area of ID expertise is ticks of the UK & Europe, but I have experience identifying tick specimens from around the world. I am also experienced in UK/European mosquito ID.

I run the following iNaturalist projects:
