Introduction
Curator of Entomology at the Iziko South African Museum in Cape Town. My research focuses mainly on the systematics, evolution and biology of wasps, particularly from the Afrotropical region, but fig wasps are dealt with on a global level. I work on the systematics of many families of African Hymenoptera. My long term goal is to document and describe the rich unexplored fauna in the region under the umbrella of the Afrotropical Hymenoptera Initiative - WaspWeb www.waspweb.org
