Welcome to my website. I am a museum researcher and educator, based in Leicester, UK. I am also a part-time Senior Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Education in London, where I work on the MA in Museums and Galleries in Education.

In 2014 I completed my PhD in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester, using young children’s photography to explore their experiences in a natural history museum. I’m particularly interested in the ways in which children make sense of, and personally engage with nature and science within museums.

Here you can find out more about my work in museum learning, my research interests, and find links to my publicationsI love to visit and photograph museums, and so you will also find a few of my pictures dotted around, with more in the gallery. Please use the contact form to get in touch with me if you would like more information.
