I am a systematic entomologist with a particular interest in the beetle family Staphylinidae (rove beetles). I study rove beetle taxonomy, phylogenetics, biogeography and palaeontology. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I completed my PhD in the Solodovnikov Lab at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen, my MSc in Entomology at Harper Adams University and my BSc in Ecology at the University of East Anglia.
