Lindsey T. Groves

Collections Manager, Malacology

M.S. Geology, California State University, Northridge, 1991
B.S. Geology, Northern Arizona University, 1983

In 1988, Lindsey came to the Museum as a Curatorial Assistant on a National Science Foundation (NSF) collection grant. Back then he was also pursuing his M.S. in geology with an emphasis on molluscan paleontology at California State University, Northridge. After completing his thesis he was promoted to Project Manager to assist on a subsequent NSF grant to begin collection computerization.

When the Malacology and Invertebrate Paleontology (IP) Departments merged together in 1993 Lindsey was promoted to Collections Manager for both sections. Then in 2002 when a new IP Collections Manager was hired he returned to the Malacology Department full time.

Current projects include two databasing projects: the world-wide gastropods project and the gastropod voucher material of the northeast Pacific for James McLean.
