Conservation

Summary

After spending some time in preventive conservation roles at Historic Royal Palaces and National Museums Scotland, I was keen to return to remedial conservation. In August 2011 I started at the Natural History Museum, in what was then known as the Palaeontology Conservation Unit. My current role within the Conservation Centre includes completing remedial conservation treatment of objects for exhibition and research, assisting in the preventive conservation programme and providing conservation advice and support for project based issues, as well as drop in collection concerns. My current ongoing conservation interests include treatment of Life Sciences specimens, in particular the unique challenges of spirit collections, and all aspects of taxidermy.
