Research

Research interest

My research mainly concerns studies on the nomenclature, taxonomy and zoogeography of the worldwide living scallops (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Pectinidae), glass-scallops (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Propeamussiidae) and micro-scallops (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Cyclochlamydidae). A major focus of my research has been to determine the identity and relationships of bathyal pectinoideans, particularly those sampled by French cruises  to the tropical Indo-Pacific.

Second interest is in historical, which resulted in publications on type material described by Linnaeus (1758-1771), Lamarck (1819) and Born (1778-1780), and the collation of the three editions of Knorr (1757-1775), together with the pectinids figured in Knorr.

Current research topics

1. Working on the bathyal Recent Pectinoidea (Propeamussiidae, Cyclochlamydidae and Pectinidae) from the southwestern Indian Ocean, together with Philippe Maestrati (MNHN).

2. Working on a monography of the Australian Pectinoidea, together with Dr Alan Beu (GNS Science).
