Dr Derek W. Keats
Derek was biology professor for over 20 years, and discovered several species new to science (not birds, alas), and even has a species named after him. His studies have encompassed ecology, systematics and phylogeny and technology in education and he has published around 80 academic papers. He has published more than 100 magazine articles, in which he has brought science and nature to lay persons. He has also been a university vice president (deputy vice chancellor), held various technology posts, and technology geek. He is an accomplished nature photographer on land and under water, with his photos appearing in over 20 books, hundreds of magazines and several mobile apps. Today he works in FinTech, but prefers to spend time photographing birds, and looking after Learn-the-Birds.
