I studied History at Edinburgh University and joined the Gallery in 2006 as part of the archive team. I subsequently attained a Post Graduate Diploma in Archives and Records Management at University College London and was appointed Archivist in 2011. I am also a member of the ARLIS Art Archives Committee and Treasurer of the Museums & Galleries History Group.
Areas of interest / research
Given the scope of the archive collections and the nature of my role working with primary source material, my research interests are diverse. Areas of particular professional interest include the early history of the Gallery, the development of curatorial practice and the life and work of the Gallery’s first Director Sir George Scharf (1820-1895).
