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