I have received a Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung/Foundation to work in Germany for up to one year. At present I am in the Museum für Naturkunde doing research alongside my former research student and postdoc Jason Dunlop, who is head of the Chelicerata collections here. See a short press release here.
In the future, I shall spend another period of research in Germany to complete the 12 months.
