Research summary

My main areas of research have related to the conservation of organic materials within museum collections. Particularly how the process of conservation is applied; from the use or excavation of an artefact, through to its display and storage in a museum context.

This has focussed on:

  • the treatment of waterlogged wood and leather,
  • the use of Data in conservation,
  • the provision of suitable display environments,
  • the management of pests in a Tropical environment and
  • the documentation of traditional techniques of conservation in South East Asia.
