Nerida Wilson is a Senior Research Scientist at the WA Museum, who uses genetic data to work on everything from land snails to fish. Nothing is safe. But heterobranch molluscs are her not-so-secret passion. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lisa Kirkendale is the Curator of Molluscs in the Department of Aquatic Zoology at the Western Australian Museum. Her work is aimed at improving our understanding of the evolution, biogeography, phylogenetics and diversity of molluscs in Western Australia and the region. Contact: email@example.com
Gary Cobb started searching for and recording Nudibranchs on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland over 15 years ago. Through this search, initiatives such as nudibranch.com.au and Nudibranch Central (found on Facebook) have developed. Gary has also developed a series of smart device applications helping people to identify nudibranchs called Nudibranch ID. Several years ago Gary co-wrote a book called Undersea Jewels, a record of the first 277 nudibranch species we had found. That number is now 717. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Clay Bryce is a member of the WA Museum’s Department of Aquatic Zoology where he has had a long history within the Molluscs section. He currently manages marine biodiversity projects, such as the multi-award winning Woodside Collection Project (Kimberley) 2008–present. Contact: email@example.com
Corey Whisson has been a Technical Officer in the Mollusc Section of the Western Australian Museum for over 16 years. During this time he has specialised in the terrestrial and freshwater molluscs of Western Australia, having written several scientific papers and popular articles and compiled over 300 unpublished reports. His current research interest is the taxonomy and biogeography of the Gondwanan land snail genus Bothriembryon. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kara Layton is a PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia and a research associate at the Western Australian Museum studying the molecular systematics and evolution of marine gastropods. Kara specifically employs next-generation sequencing methods to resolve a radiation of Chromodoris nudibranchs in the Indo-Pacific as well as exploring coevolution between parasitic eulimid gastropods and their echinoderm hosts in both Australia and Antarctica. Her love for heterobranchs began in the subarctic where she studied marine mollusc diversity for her undergraduate and master’s research. Contact: email@example.com
Alex Hickling is a Technical Officer at the WA museum, assisting with all aspects of fieldwork and research as part of the ACE (Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition) grant. He has a background in aquaculture and benthic marine invertebrates. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
