Harrie is currently studying for her PhD at the University of Oxford, UK. She completed an MSci in Palaeobiology at University College London in 2014. Her research focuses on the evolution of arthropod moulting behaviours in the fossil record, which means that she travels to lots of different museum collections across the world to look at many fossils (mainly trilobites). She became interested in the natural world at a very young age, through voraciously devouring every available documentary on reptiles, dinosaurs, marine life and everything else. Rob Bredl (the Barefoot Bushman) was her idol. By the age of ten, she had decided on a career as a palaeontologist following repeated excited visits to natural history museums, notably the Royal Tyrell Museum in Alberta, Canada.
