I am a conservation scientist based in Naarm (Melbourne) with degrees in chemistry and cultural materials conservation. My scientific investigations are informed by a grounded understanding of interdisciplinary practice and a deep knowledge of contemporary art conservation.

When applying scientific techniques to the study of cultural heritage, whether in-situ or laboratory-based, I prioritise non-invasive and non-destructive methods. My solid understanding of the investigative potential and limitations associated with these techniques is strengthened by experimental research in support of conservation and preservation activities.

I have worked both independently and within multi-disciplinary teams across small and large-scale projects, collaborating with conservators, curatorial staff, other conservation scientists, and scientists. I place great value on communication, including with non-technical audiences in the arts and sciences, and for public engagement and education purposes.

I am currently finishing my doctoral research at the Unviersity of Melbourne investigating the behaviour of modern artists’ paints in hot and humid climates.
