Researcher in Biology & Palaeontology, Natural History Museum Vienna

Andreas Kroh is a researcher and curator at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Austria. His main research interests are echinoderms, with focus on the phylogeny, nomenclature and systematics of echinoids. Being a paleontologist with a strong interest in bridging the gap between life and earth sciences, he is actively involved in various efforts to ease access to biodiversity and taxonomic data on echinoids. He is involved in two database projects working towards this goal: the World Echinoidea Database (marinespecies.org/echinoidea) and the Echinoid Directory (www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/echinoid-directory).
