Mini-Biography
Andrew Polaszek is Executive Secretary of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, part-time researcher at the Dept of Entomology, Natural History Museum, London, and Visiting Scientist, Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, U.K. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in 1982 from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and completed a PhD in1987 at Imperial College on comparative anatomy of aphid reproductive systems (including the effects of parasitoids). He then spent fifteen years with the Commonwealth (later International) Institute of Entomology, at the Natural History Museum, London, working on parasitoid taxonomy, in particular chalcids and "proctos" of economic importance. From 1990-94 he worked on secondment at Wageningen Agricultural University (The Netherlands) leading a project on the parasitoids of African cereal stem borers. Andrew's major research interests have focussed on the taxonomy of economically important parasitoid groups, and will be directed in future on the co-evolution of proctotrupomorpha and their hosts.
