Gail Austen-Price

Gail started her professional life accounting in large financial institutions, but changed direction, via work and study, to natural sciences. This included working for the National Farmers Union, local Biological Records Centre, and lecturing, culminating in an MSc in Advanced Methods in Taxonomy and Biodiversity from Imperial College.

Gail’s role in the team is in an administrative and support capacity, but she is involved in Citizen Science concerned with nature conservation in her free time. She currently serves as Chair for the Kent Reptile and Amphibian Group, and also works part-time for Mapping for Change and the ICZN.

My personal research interests include morphology and geometric morphometrics, especially relating to vertebrates.  However, I am also very passionate about the scope and possibilities afforded by ExCiteS research. Science should be inclusive, not exclusive: everyone has something to offer and finding that ‘something’ is the key to success.
