Rupert Collins

Rupert CollinsOriginally from the United Kingdom, Rupert is a keen aquarist, and this interest in ichthyology led him to complete an MSc in Taxonomy and Biodiversity at the Natural History Museum and Imperial College, London.

His main research interest is with the species level taxonomy and systematics of freshwater fishes, including many of those popular in the aquarium trade. He is currently based at the Bio-Protection Research Centre, Lincoln University, New Zealand, researching molecular ornamental fish identification techniques for biosecurity applications.

His visit to the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research has been to gather aquarium fish specimens for DNA analysis, and to link up with other ichthyologists.
