Introduction
An independent researcher in malacology, I carry out my own field work and publish my results. I taught a college seminar at Yale, worked at the Harvard MCZ, and as volunteer staff at AMNH since the year 2000. I was a major contributor to the Conchological Society's distribution mapping scheme of non-marine Mollusca of the British Isles, including an expedition to Ireland. I was part of the 3-week Naturalis "Statia Marine Expedition 2015" to the Caribbean Netherlands island of Sint Eustatius.
