Through my involvement in various museum curation projects, I have developed a keen eye for design, the ability to organise, present and communicate messages that are accessible to diverse audiences, and excellent project management and organisational skills.
Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
I worked with the Institute's Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center to curate "Original Copies?", an exhibition that showcased my research into collection of plaster casts of ancient coins and pinakia held at the IAS. The exhibition sought to reexamine the value of copies, inviting its audience to question whether they can be considered, in any sense, original.

Crawford Art Gallery, Cork
I collaborated with assistant curator Michael Waldron to create "Material Matters", an installation within the Sculpture Galleries. The display explored the material and making processes of the Crawford's plaster casts, and other marble and wood sculptures within their collections. I created the concept, label text, a gallery guide, and an activity pack for young people.
Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester
I served on the curatorial team of the "Journey to Justice" exhibition, which aimed to galvanise people to take action for social justice through learning about the human rights movements and the arts. I assisted primarily with content design and editing, as well as writing text for wall panels and labelling.
Pitt Rivers Museum Oxford
I co-curated a pop-up exhibition that ran alongside the Lasting Impressions II study day, an event that explored the material and making of reproductions. The hands-on exhibition featured the work of local artists and practice-based PhD students, highlighting the often-unappreciated craftsmanship involved in replica-making.
