Entomolog Thomas J. Simonsen er forsker og kurator på NHMA med ansvar for den entomologiske tørsamling. Han har næsten 20 års erfaring med diversitets- og evolutionsstudier af insekter. Hans forskningserfaring spænder fra klassisk taxonomi og faunistik, over sammenlignende morfologi og anatomi (inkl. puppe embryologi), til fylogeni, biogeografi, fylogeografi, øko-evolution og artsdannelse. Metodologisk har han erfaring indenfor en række dicipliner så som mikroskopi (lys-, elektron-, laser- og konfokal mikroskopi), mikro-CT scanning, rets-entomologi, DNA analyser (fra enkelt-gen studier til fylogenomiske studier), samt diverse software til fylogenetisk, biogeografiske og fylogeografiske analyser. Meget af hans hidtidige forskning har været fokuseret på sommerfugle, men han har også erfaring med arbejde i flere andre insketgrupper som tovinger (fluer og myg) og guldsmede. Hans nuværende forskning er tildels fokuseret på diversitet og udbredelseshistorie af noreuropæiske insketer, specielt med henblik på arts-dannels og -adskillelse, samt effekter af klima- og landskabsforandringer (fortidige, såvel som nutidige og fremtidige). Han er desuden stærkt interesseret i problemstillinger og krav til brug af museumssamlinger i moderne biodiversitetsforskning, fra masse-digitalisering til brug af ældre materiale til DNA studier. Thomas har en fortid ved Statens Naturhistoriske Museum i København, hvor han skrev speciale (2000) og ph. d. (2004), University of Alberta i Canada (2005-2009), hvor han var postdoc forsker, og Natural History Museum i London (2009-2015), hvor han var fastansat forsker, indtil han tiltrådte sin stilling ved NHMA. Thomas er involveret i en række samarbejder (internationale og nationale) og vejleder pt. to postdoc forskere (begge tilknyttet NHM, London).

 

Ansvarsområder

- Forskning i insektdiversitet og evolution

- Kuratering af Naturhistorisk Museums tørsamling (insekter)

Interesser

Mine forskningsmæssige interesser omfatter en lang række aspekter af insektevolution og –diversitet, dog generelt fokuseret på sommerfuglene. Jeg arbejder med evolution af sommerfugle, både på højere (familie) niveau bl.a. med fokus på morfologiske og anatomiske konsekvenser af nyere molekylære (fylogenomiske) studier, og på art- og slægtsniveau med fokus på artsrigdom, zoogeografi og økoevolution. Jeg arbejder ligeledes med udbredelseshistorie (fylogeografi) af europæiske insekter over de sidste par millioner år med særlig fokus på den nordeuropæiske faunas oprindelse, og artsafgrænsninger inden for problematiske grupper baseret på både morfologiske og molekylære metoder. Jeg er stærkt interesseret i sammenlignende insektmorfologi og –anatomi, og arbejder med at udvikle nye metoder som micro-CT scanning og Laser-confocal mikroskopi til at undersøge og visualisere insektmorfologi, til brug i fx udviklingsbiologi og rets entomologi. Endelig er jeg interesseret i hvordan menneskeskabte faktorer som landskabs- og klimaændringer påvirker insekters diversitet, udbredelse og biologi.

Jeg er et aktivt foreningsmenneske, og er medlem af en række ind- og udenlandske faglige organisationer og foreninger.
