Andrew Hosie has been with the Western Australian Museum as the Curator of Crustacea and Worms since 2009. During this time most of his research has focused on the crustacean diversity of the tropical reefs of Australia’s north west. Andrew has worked with many facets of crustacean research such as commercial fisheries, invasive species and reproductive ecology; however, his primary interest is in biodiversity and taxonomy. Current research includes crustacean biodiversity of the Exmouth region, evolution and host utilisation of symbiotic crustacean groups, and the systematics and taxonomy of barnacles. Recent years have seen more involvement in the Australian deep sea, with Andrew being aboard the Falkor for the exploration of the Perth Canyon and identifying the barnacles from abyssal depths along Australia’s east coast and the Great Australian Bight. Andrew is also heavily involved in developing marine science content for exhibits and engagement as part of the redevelopment of the WA Museum’s flagship site in Perth. Andrew received an MSc in Zoology from Canterbury University, Christchurch and is currently a part-time PhD student at Curtin University, Perth. His PhD thesis is exploring the diversity and evolution of symbioses between barnacles and sponges.
