Current Committee Role:

Programme Secretary

About Me: 

I am Curator of Fossil Invertebrates (Brachiopods and Fossil Cephalopods) at the Natural History Museum in London. Here I am responsible for the care of a diverse collection (in terms of taxonomy, specimen preservation and type) of around 9000 drawers of specimens. I am also responsible for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the department and participate in outreach events both inside and outside the Museum; I'm a regular at Lyme Regis and love doing Nature Lives and my Dinosnores science show on octopuses. As of December 2019 I am also the Outreach Officer for the Palaeontological Association. I've only been on the committee for three years and I have learnt a lot from committee who are a group of like minded people from my sector. If you have any ideas for events that you would like to see the GCG run, or if you would like to host one of our events, please send me an email This email address is being protected from spambots.

At University I studied Zoology with molluscs being my first love. I did my MSc at Imperial with the NHM which is where my love of fossils (especially ammonites) took off. I enjoy doing fieldwork, especially if there's clay involved! so far while at the NHM I have done fieldwork in the UK in various locations, Morocco and China.
