About Me: 

I am Principal Curator of the Earth System section at National Museums Scotland. NMS comprises several museums, the largest of which is the National Museum of Scotland in central Edinburgh. I work there and at the National Museums Collection Centre in north Edinburgh. I am, together with a team of three, responsible for the care and development of 70,000 mineral, rock and meteorite specimens, a beautiful collection accumulated over 250 years. My job involves building the collection, facilitating and undertaking research projects, managing the team and several volunteers and leading a digital data capture project.  I sit on the EU GeoCASE advisory Board, am an Associate Editor for EESTRSE (Royal Society of Edinburgh publication), am an Ordinary Member of the Edinburgh Geological Society and am a keen member of the fabulous Geological Curators’ Group. My specialty interest is helping GCG support the needs and interests of people who work with mineral collections.
