I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Biology and worked in conservation before doing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and becoming a teacher. I also studied for an MA in Museum Studies in 2012. While studying for the MA, I researched and wrote a dissertation on visitor responses to the ‘London, Sugar and Slavery’ exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands. Following this, I worked as a research assistant for various clients, researching and reporting on areas such as community engagement project outcomes, civic engagement studies and visitor survey data. I have also worked as a private tutor for primary school age children and also for students learning English as an Additional Language.
Some of my own interests include conservation, ornithology, botany, photography, visitor studies, history and evaluation. I am learning spoken Mandarin (slowly). I very much enjoy learning and am always happy to read about new subjects – including yours.
