I have an Honours Degree in Conservation Biology and Ecology, with 5 years experience in scientific report writing, statistical multivariate data analysis and research. I have a keen skill for detailed and concise writing and am able to interpret an extensive repertoire of information relating to ecological, taxonomic, cytological, morphological and behavioural data in a short amount of time. I am very familiar with a range of scientific laboratory procedures and techniques relating to animal physiology (dissection, for morphological and electrophysiology investigation), botanical morphology, cell biology and genetics as well as an extensive range of field techniques for ecological investigation. I enjoy and am confident with a range of statistical data programmes. I have many years experience taking nature photographs, particularly of interest entomology, floral anatomy and mycology. I also do a bit of screen printing and digital art, just for personal enjoyment.
