Learn more about the people who conserve the Australian Museum's vast collections.
"I have been working with the museum's ethnographic, archaeological and natural history collections since 1989 and have been Manager of Materials Conservation since 2001."
"Currently, I am coordinating preventive conservation programs such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and storage and re-housing projects for objects and specimens."
"Currently, most of my work is on collection material that the Australian Museum loans to other institutions. We receive frequent requests to loan collection items to institutions around Australia and overseas."
"I joined the unit in 1989. I have worked across the museum’s ethnographic, archaeological and natural science collections and on numerous exhibition projects."
"I joined the Materials Conservation department as an Objects Conservator in April 2010. So far I have worked across the Natural history and Cultural collections on a number of conservation projects."
