Julia Day

 


I am a systematist and primarily use phylogenetic inference to answer evolutionary questions. Much of my work focuses on African freshwater fish as a study system, but I’m interested in other African radiations too. In addition to my research, I organise and teach on undergraduate courses at UCL that include Animal Biodiversity. I have had a long association with The Natural History Museum since undertaking my PhD there, and am currently a Scientific Associate in the Department of Life Sciences, NHM.
