Ashleigh Whiffin

Ashleigh Whiffin tells us about her work as Assistant Curator of Entomology at National Museums Scotland, as well as the slightly unusual way she first became interested in insects, leading to her pursuing a career in entomology.

Ashleigh mentions finding out that carrion insects can help solve crimes. How cool is that? Can you think of any other ways that insects help us? Let us know in the Contact us section of the blog.
