I am queer and I am an evolutionary biologist. //
LGBT scientists have played a big part in inspiring my work as an evolutionary biologist. I am happy to have one of my current desks near the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, which would not be the amazing collection of biodiversity it is without its founder, Annie Alexander. I owe much of my current happiness at work to those that pursued their scientific passions at times when it was far more difficult.
