Susan J. Hewitt is a naturalist in the British tradition. She has been on the volunteer staff at AMNH, New York, NY, since the year 2000, spending seven years working in the malacology section of Invertebrate Zoology, where she was awarded Field Associate status from 2006 to 2008. When the malacology section became inactive in 2007, she moved to Invertebrate Paleontology so she could work with mollusks in the fossil record.
Susan previously had a position at the Harvard MCZ for 2 years in malacology, and taught a college seminar on the subject at Yale. She has been interested in mollusks since she was a small child in England. She has over 40 scientific publications, is actively involved in field research in the Leeward Islands, West Indies, and is currently writing several papers on the marine mollusks of that area.
In the past Susan has also studied the land and freshwater mollusks of the British Isles (including the slugs), and the marine mollusks of Southern California. Two of her publications are on Pleistocene fossils, and one is about shells in an ancient archeological site.
Susan is also very active on Wikipedia, where she is a founder member of both WikiProject Gastropods and WikiProject Bivalves:
