Beginning employment at the Australian Museum in 1981, I began permanent work in the Ichthyology Section in 1982. Initially working as a technical officer, I became the Collection Manager in 1987, a role I have held since that time.

During my career, I’ve organised and/or participant in over 30 collecting trips and expeditions within Australia and throughout the Pacific region.

My research work focused on the taxonomy of the Ghost Flatheads, Family Hoplichthyidae.

I've participated in numerous workshops, given many seminars and media presentations and have published written articles for both popular and scientific publications; more recently considerable effort has been directed to web based publications.
