Personal profile

I am a AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral Award student working in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). My project is looking at Indigenous contribution to the map collection of the Royal Geographical Society, and I am exploring the historical significance of “Indigenous maps” as sources of geographical information, as ethnographic objects, and as artefacts of encounter. 

Prior to starting my PhD, I completed an MSc in Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology at the University of Oxford and a BA (Hons) in History at King's College London. I have some experience with working with ethnographic collections through curatorial research internships at the Brooklyn Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
