I am a PhD candidate focusing on notions of use, significance and ethics within the museum sector. I am particularly interested in heritage management strategies and processes that enable visitors to fully appreciate heritage experiences whilst caring for collections.
I am a Graduate Tutor for:

Heritage Management of Tanks: Cultural Value of a Vehicle
The study examines current ethical frameworks and notions of value to form management decisions on the operating, display or storage of Armoured Fighting Vehicles in a museum context. It considers the significance of moving tanks and their associated sensory outputs against the established argument of displaying vehicles in a static condition to preserve the historic fabric.
