As Curatorial Assistant at the Grant Museum of Zoology I assist with all aspects of museum work. I provide access to the collection for researchers, students and members of the public, and work on collections care and documentation.

Background:

I studied Natural Sciences at Durham University, specialising in Biology and Archaeology, then went on to complete an MSc in Taxonomy and Biodiversity at Imperial College. Before I came to UCL I worked in the Entomology Department and the Identification Service at the Natural History Museum, and at the Geffrye Museum. Most recently I worked on the historically important JT Quekett microscope slide collection at the Royal College of Surgeons.

I also like to volunteer in museum collections whenever I can, and have worked on projects at museums around the country including Oxford University Museum of Natural History, World Museum Liverpool and the Horniman Museum.  

Interests:

My areas of interest include entomology, microscope slide collections, the history of natural history collections and museum documentation.
