Geology: THE ORIGINS OF STARFISH AND BRITTLE STARS

Dr Aaron Hunter

Dr Aaron Hunter is a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge Department of Earth Sciences. He has worked extensively on the origins of both the Asteroidea (Starfish) and the Ophiuroidea (Brittle Stars) relating their development to the seas in which they lived.

Lecture meetings take place in room G8, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol, BS8 1RJ. For those unfamiliar with this venue: Enter the Wills Building via main entrance and walk ahead between the two staircases. Turn left when you reach some display cases and follow the corridor round. Room G8 is on your right.

Following a career in Logistics and Procurement I am now focussing on volunteering with particular interests in the natural world and environmental issues. I'm currently volunteering with Transition Clevedon, BRERC and Clevedon Pier. With bristol Nats I am the President of the Geology Section and Society Treasurer (From mid- 2016)
