She has worked at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff since 1997 managing the marine invertebrate collections, undertaking marine benthic survey work and carrying out taxonomic research on polychaete worms (bristleworms). Teresa has an interest in all groups of polychaetes and has published on new species from several different families from around the British Isles, Seychelles and South Africa.
