Hey, thanks for checking out my bio! I have been working in palaeontology for some 8+ years and during that time I've been very privileged to travel around the world and work on many fascinating projects from excavating dinosaurs in the American West to discovering new species of extinct marine reptiles in the UK.
I work as a freelance palaeontologist but am affiliated with the University of Manchester as an Honorary Visiting Scientist. I'm very passionate about science communication and actively engage with traditional and social media. I've written two books, numerous scientific papers and many popular articles and regularly appear on television, most recently as series advisor and recurring on-screen expert presenter for a TV documentary called Dinosaur Britain (a two-part series based in-part on my book, Dinosaurs of the British Isles). I am also the patron of the UK Amateur Fossil Hunters organisation.
