Current Committee Role:
Newsletter Editor and Acting Journal Editor
I am a Senior Conservator at the Natural History Museum in London (UK). My role includes co-ordinating the conservation of all Earth Science collections projects and work requests, and giving advice to curators on storage issues. I love project management, solving problems and (when I get the time) undertaking research to develop preservation techniques.
I hold a BSc in Geology, MSc in Palaeobiology, MSc in Museum Studies and MA in Principles of Conservation. I think that I first learned to love geology because I grew up in a rock-poor county, so seeing an outcrop always meant that I was going on holiday. Decades later I am still fascinated by earth science materials and believe strongly in the necessity of safeguarding collections. I am very proud to be a member of the GCG Committee and hope that I can make a worthwhile contribution to the valuable work of the group.
