I manage NatSCA’s Bill Pettit Grant to support natural science projects including conservation, access and use of collections. Alongside this, I raise money for NatSCA through organising trade stands and sponsorship.

I am Curator of Earth Sciences at Manchester Museum, where I lead exhibitions, citizen science, teaching, public programmes and facilitate research on the collection. My specialism is palaeontology and historical geology, but enjoy all aspects of the geology collection at Manchester.
