She holds a Masters of Science Communication and has extensive experience in STEM education and community outreach. As a curator, she works across the Museum’s science collections with a focus on managing the health and medical collection. Her recent work involves the delivery of many successful cross-disciplinary exhibitions, such as Linear (2019), Design for Life (2020), and Eucalyptusdom (2021).
