In Media

Some of my publications have received significant media recognition across international outlets, including the BBC, Science AAAS, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Forbes. At a time when taxonomy is not well-funded and considered rather "light" compared to other branches of science, I believe it is extremely important to promote the value of taxonomic work to the lay audience.
