I have been a member of NatSCA for many years and am passionately committed to museums and natural history collections. I joined the committee in 2018, taking on the role of blog editor which I really enjoy. It is incredibly rewarding to be part of such an enthusiastic and talented community.

I have been a curator at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff since 2001 where I am part of the team that cares for the mollusca and vertebrate collections. My job involves facilitating access to both collections through enquiries, visitors, loans and new acquisitions. A large part of my job also involves public engagement, events and exhibitions to promote our fantastic natural history collections to our visitors.

My area of expertise has been molluscs for over 15 years, principally focusing on historical research of the collections.
