I am the NatSCA Editor. I am responsible for managing the Journal of Natural Science Collections and NatSCA Notes & Comments, as well as overseeing the NatSCA blog and administering the Facebook page. With the help of a wonderful team of hard-working volunteers, I receive articles, liaise with peer reviewers, and format the Journal and Notes & Comments prior to publication.

I studied Zoology and Palaeobiology, and now work as a Documentation Assistant at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, where I help to manage, document, photograph, and digitise collections. I work across the collections, but am primarily working on a major redisplay of our Anthropology galleries at the moment, which is very exciting. My primary area of expertise is museum documentation. I also have an interest in worked animal materials, particularly ivories and bone. I am a keen birder, and a member of the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). I can often be found in the parklands of East London with a pair of binoculars in hand!
