Biography

Curator (Mineralogy/Petrology)

I have spent almost all my working life working with collections of rocks, minerals, gemstones and meteorites, first in the geology department at the University of Leicester, and then, since 1992, at the Hunterian.

I've loved rocks and minerals since a child, when I became enthused by beautiful rocks around the family house on the Isle of Mull, and later, on old mine dumps around Dalkeith, and the Leadhills-Wanlockhead area especially.

As a curator, I look after, develop and encourage the use of The Hunterian's wonderful rock and mineral collections, and Scotland's amazing geoheritage. I also teach students, and carry out research. Being part of the community of Earth sciencetists, and others engaged in teaching and research is important, so that I can act as a matchmaker between Hunterian specimens, and the people who need them, from meteoriticists, mineralogists and geochemists, to archaeologists, art historians, artists, and members of the public.

Research interests

Research

I have wide research interests across mineralogy, igneous and metamorphic petrology, geochemistry, economic geology (especially granite pegmatites, and artisanal and small-scale mining issues), archaeological lithic materials, public engagement, geoconservation and geodiversity issues, radiation and asbestos safety, historical geology, and museum and collections practice. Among other things...

Collections

I am responsible for the rock and mineral collections, including gemstones and meteorites. inlcuding their day-to-day care, conservation, documentation and development, and advocating for their use as widely as possible by diverse groups.

Exhibitions & displays

Recent exhibitions I have been involved with include:

Supervision

I co-supervise a number of PhD and MSc students, with other staff in GES, and at SUERC, and at other universities in the UK.

  • Phesodi, Mmapula
    The cratonic mantle beneath Botswana using kimberlite xenocrystic records as lithospheric probes: A comparative study

Teaching

Level 2 BSc Geology/Earth Science Arran field class

Level 3 BSc Geology/Earth Science Mull field class

Level 4 Geology Economic Minerals and Resources

PGT MSc Techincal Art History: The properties and mineralogy of pigments

PGT MScMuseum Studies: Curating the Sciences: Geological Collctions in Museums

 

I also teach on international summer schools in the University, and regularly supervise undergraduate and MSc lab projects, and I am currently co-supervising a PhD student working on new methods of dating minerals using noble gas isotopes.
