The Australian Taxonomy
I am primarily interested in everything snaily, mostly on land and in freshwater, with focus on Australia and Asia - systematics, phylogenetics and biogeography are topics that feature large in my work. My current work focusses on camaenid and helicarioid land snails on the Australian mainland and on the land snail faunas on Lord Howe and Norfolk Island. I am also collaborating with international partners in studies of Asian freshwater gastropods.
As an editor of several zoological journals and of Molluscabase, I use my experience to contribute to the wider taxonomic community.
