Senior Curator Botanist with particular interests in Araceae, Neotropics, monocots, eTaxonomy, TIPAs Bolivia, Colombia

I curate all plants from the Americas, with a particular focus on curation and identification of monocots. Research interests include Neotropical Monocots, with a particular interest in Araceae (from all areas). I have a strong background in eTaxonomy, which includes the Creating a Taxonomic e-Science (CATE) project, eMonocot and Neotropikey. I manage CATE Araceae which aims to keep up-to-date with pages for all Araceae taxa.
