Brilliant Beetles

Beetles are the most diverse group of insects in the world. The UK alone has more than 4,000 beetle species.

Kiran Lee is OmVed Gardens ecologist. A naturalist with a passion for understanding nature, he has previously volunteered at the Natural History Museum, London Zoo and London Wildlife Trust. Kiran is currently a PhD student with the Seychelles Warbler Project using genomics to understand the ecology and evolution of island-endemic Seychelles warblers, which had nearly gone extinct in the 1960s. Key influences are his mother, a keen gardener and grandmother, both botanist and biology teacher. He also aims to improve diversity and accessibility in science and in natural spaces. His research can be found on GitHub.
