Much of my recent work has been for/about “memory institutions”
— museums, archives, and libraries.

My AHRC-funded PhD project is entitled Collecting the boundaries of art in the Science Museum Group. It is a collaborative doctoral project between the Science Museum Group and Birkbeck, University of London.

Previously, I built a digital archive/collections website at Queen Elizabeth’s School, Barnet, where I was Curator of Collections & Head of Library Services.

Before that I taught at Sorbonne University’s Faculté des Lettres.

I served as a historical consultant for The Man in the Red Coat by Booker Prize-winning writer Julian Barnes.

Research interests include:


memory institutions

history & theory of science

history & theory of medium / media


history & theory of art

history & theory of photography

digital heritage
