Spanning the realms of curator, designer and maker, I have built an active portfolio in the museum sector. My work focuses on breaking the traditional rhetoric of the museum: using creative methods and innovative materials objects sit at the heart of my work and research.
I am an industry practitioner, teaching fellow at the University of Leeds and researcher specialising in heritage and 3D technologies. I completed a practice based PhD at Sheffield Hallam University, where using curatorial and design based methods I explored how and why 3D printing effects the museum. My background in curation has driven me to focus on the curatorial perspective. My PhD, like my work, is centred in the museum. During the data collection phase of my research I spent 2- months working with Museums Sheffield and English Heritage and 3 months working with The British Museum.
