Zabývá se:

I am interested in the changing roles of textiles and dress, of museum and archive collections, and sites, and the effect of these changing roles on conservation and curatorial decisions. My PhD research linked the physical nature of objects to their cultural dynamics. I have analysed the principles and practice of conservation by identifying and studying anomalous artefacts, e.g. garments found in caches and string figures (cat’s cradles), and the effects of ‘significance assessment’.

V současné době pracuje na:

  • exploiting the www for data collection and research dissemination, and facilitating interactive, online access to collections, e.g. by polynomial texture maps (PTMs)
  • leading the Deliberately Concealed Garments Project
