Current Committee Roles:
I am the Collections Manager (Earth Collections) at Oxford University Museum of Natural History, where I am responsible for the day-to-day management of the Vertebrate Palaeontology Collections, including access, care, development, and research.
As a vertebrate palaeontologist I have worked across a variety of taxonomic groups, but my primary research interest lies in sharks and reptiles from the Mesozoic Era. In 2021, I was involved in an excavation in Rutland, of the largest near-complete ichthyosaur skeleton in Britain. I am passionate about engaging the public in science and, subsequent to the Rutland excavation, have delivered a talk and Q&A to over 3,700 school children, at over 140 schools, on fossil marine reptiles.
I have been on the GCG Committee since 2017 in a variety of roles, including Blog Editor. I thoroughly enjoy working with such a talented and dedicated group of professionals, and welcome the opportunity to support the geoscience community within the wider sector.
I am a Fellow of the Geological Society of London and on the organising committee for the Marine Reptile Conference. Further affiliations include the Palaeontological Association, Paleontological Society, and Natural Sciences Collections Association.
