Murdoch University, Australia
Fred Wells is an Adjunct Professor at Murdoch University in Perth. He was the President of Unitas Malacologica and Senior Curator (Malacology) at the Western Australian Museum where he has examined distributional patterns of molluscs in the western third of the continent and placed this in a broader geographical context.
