Nathan T. Jones
Group Manager and Oniscidea Biogeographer
Nathan is a high school student pursuing a future career in the field of marine biology. His primary focus lies in the biogeographical patterns and invasion biology of Oniscidea species within the continental United States. Of particular interest is their commercial presence as a potential vector for introduction. Along with conducting his own research on a multitude of recent introductions, namely Proporcellio vulcanius and Halophiloscia couchii, he passionately assists a multitude of researchers from undergraduate to post-doc in studies on Oniscidea within North and South America.
Nathan manages most of AIMG's activities, including the website and social platforms. He hopes that this website will provide valuable information to all who are interested in isopods. If you have any suggestions for the website, need help with a project, need an isopod species identified, or anything else isopod-related, feel free to contact him.
Lead Isopoda Taxonomist
Sequoia is a recent graduate from SUNY-ESF. Her future career goals include taxonomy and field study, mainly of Isopods. She is currently working on a global isopod synthesis collecting information on taxonomy, ecology and morphology of all known isopods.
Oonagh is a home-schooled high school student. Her future career goals include genetics, ecology, and biology.
Grant Wang is a high school student with aims for a career in systematics, morphological comparison, and curation. He is currently engaged in conducting surveys on Californian terrestrial isopods and neglected soil fauna groups as well as mapping out a better morphological understanding and taxonomic framework of the Pauropoda.
He has experience with field collection, species identification, macro photography, dissection, specimen processing and preparation, phylogenetic analysis, and morphological analysis.
