Eve studies the taxonomy, systematics, biogeography and conservation of the guava family (Myrtaceae), with a focus on the predominantly Neotropical tribe Myrteae and the genus Myrcia s.l. She has interests also in Neotropical ecology and other Myrtaceae with fleshy fruits. Eve curates the Myrtales collection in the Kew herbarium, sits on the editorial boards of the Flora of the Guianas and Kew Bulletin and is an editor of Phytotaxa. Eve lectures on the Kew tropical id course and likes nothing more than Neotropical field work.
