I’m Curator of Natural History at the (Whanganui Regional Museum) in New Zealand. This is a small museum with a 19th-century natural history collection, and a very large collection of moa bones, mostly from a nearby swamp. Moa, New Zealand’s giant extinct flightless bird, are my main research interest—I did my PhD at Duke on the evolution of body size in giant flightlessness birds. I’m also interested in rather old-fashioned anatomy and biogeography; old-fashioned at least compared to the amazing ancient DNA research currently being done on extinct birds. Before I went back to school to study biology I working in museum exhibition development and science communication, and ended up teaching design and typography. Visual communication of science and the design of data graphics is still one of my enthusiasms. I’ve also just started a community (Wikipedia group), I think, is something museum curators and researchers need to take much more seriously.
