About the Author

I’m an aspiring scientist who has fallen in love with the amazing diversity that is all around us. Insects, and in particular ants, are my main interest, but I find myself intrigued by almost everything I find that’s new! I decided to start this blog so I could write about the things I’ve learnt while reading about things I’m curious about.

I am born and bred in Australia, and spent most of my years in the city of Melbourne. After I graduated from my undergraduate degree I moved to Hong Kong, to work as a research assistant in the Insect Biodiversity and Biogeography Lab at the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

After I left HKU I moved onto some short term work, working on a government project in Darwin (Australia) that involved taking high resolution photos of insects, using a Leica microscope and camera setup.

My interest definitely still lies in research, and I’m always interested in keeping up with new publications. If you have anything interesting you’d like to share with me feel free contact me using the form below! I’ll get back to you ASAP. 🙂
