Personal Statement
I use my background in plant ecology and botany to bring an ecological perspective to plant biodiversity surveys undertaken to grow the Gardens’ vascular plant collection. Plant collections are increasingly used to answer important ecological questions, which requires innovation in how we collect and curate the physical specimens and their associated data.
