Drones for heritage communication and audience development

Background & Summary of Project

I am Portuguese and have a Bachelor's degree in Culture and Media Studies from the Portuguese Catholic University in Lisbon and an MA in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester. I have worked in Museums and Archives since 2002. I am passionate about making heritage  exciting and accessible for learning, enjoyment and inspiration, particularly to overlooked audiences. I have worked at the Museum of London and The Keep Archives in Brighton and I am an RSA fellow. Innovation, participation, excellence and leadership are some of the values that drive me. My SEAHA research project focuses on the use of drones for heritage communication and audience engagement.
