I live in the Peak District and have two roles:
Project Placement (Zoology), Leeds Museum and Galleries
ACE-funded project improving accessibility for Leeds Museum’s bird collection data – enriching collection information and getting it out there!
Honorary Curatorial Associate at Manchester Museum
In 2015 I completed a type catalogue of the 17,000 strong earwig collection, with a history of its development, and in 2016 it was the turn of the Bess Beetles (paper in print).
Consider myself privileged to be working with these amazing collections!
Collections Assistant for the HLF-funded Collections in the Landscape project at Buxton Museum
Having completed the decant of the museum gallery aided by an army of fantastic volunteers, there’s no going back! The redevelopment was completed in September 2017, linking the objects with the Peak District places they came from on the gallery, via the website, and out and about with digital trails.
