Elected as Fellow of the Linnean Society

On May 21st 2017 I was officially elected as Fellow of the Linnean Society. I am very excited to receive this honour and look forward to the ceremony.

“Founded in 1788, the Society takes its name from the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus… It is the oldest active biological society… As it moves into its third century the Society continues to play a central role in the documentation of the world’s flora and fauna – as Linnaeus himself did – recognising the continuing importance of such work to biodiversity conservation.”

“The Fellowship is international and includes world leaders in each branch of biology who use the Society’s premises and publications to communicate new advances in their fields.”
