Prior to retirement I was a Conservation Biologist and Taxonomist at the Western Australian Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions where I coordinated research and recovery work on threatened flora and prepared taxonomic treatments in the Orchidaceae and Scrophulariaceae. I am currently a Research Associate at the Western Australian Herbarium, specialising in the Orchidaceae, Colchicaceae and Scrophulariaceae. I am an author/co-author of some 150 journal publications and 12 books on the Western Australian flora and have collaborated in the formal descriptions of some 140 new Western Australian orchid species, 21 Eremophila species and a range of species in other genera. I am a life member of the Western Australian Native Orchid Study and Conservation Group, a member of the Australian Orchid Foundation and a member of the Orchid Specialist Group of the IUCN. Current interests include ongoing taxonomic research and the preparation of articles and books on the Western Australian flora.
