Research interests

My research interests are the heritage science of textiles and decorative art and social history artefacts in museums, archives and historical places for their provenance, interpretation, significance and preservation. This involves chemistry, art history, the history of making, laboratory analysis and conservation science. I am based in the The Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History within History of Art. I am Head of History of Art (2017-present). 

Current Research

  • Historical dyes, natural and synthetic
  • Historical plastics
  • Historical synthetic fibres
  • Micro-chemical analysis by UHPLC, FTIR and UV-Vis
  • Mass-production chemical history
  • Dyers’ books
  • Experimental recreation
  • Ageing studies

I lead the research of the Crutchley Archive of eighteenth-century dye books in Southwark Archives (Textile Conservation Foundation and Worshipful Company of Dyers grants), resulting in its inscription to the UNESCO UK Memory of the World register in 2020. My extensive Dye-versity research of early synthetic dyes in dyers books continues, initiated with a Carnegie Trust for Scottish Universities grant, as a legacy project from the ReCREATE research network for the experimental culture of Scotland’s nineteenth century decorative textiles (Royal Society of Edinburgh). I am also researching synthetic materials in the Scottish Business Archive, University of Glasgow, an outcome of the ReINVENT knowledge exchange network for Scotland’s historical textiles industry (Royal Society of Edinburgh). In 2021 I will be an invited Getty Guest Scholar at the Getty Conservation Institute to research modern material archives and reference collections.

Recent doctoral and postdoctoral research by my group are described in this blog for Textile Conservation  . 

Current Collaborations

I am involved with the plastics cleaning project PlasCO2, PI Joana Lia Ferreira (Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation), the materials study of the Morton cope in Bishop Auckland Museum, PI Mary Brookes (Society of Antiquaries grant), and new research on the Dunollie Museum textile collection, PI Alison Mayne (Pasold Research Fund). I am an advisor for ‘From Fleece to Fashion’, PI Lynn Abrahms (AHRC). I chair the University of Glasgow’s Smithsonian Institution Partnership Steering Group.

I continue my research interests in dyed historical Scottish tartans, cellulose nitrate and acetate plastic degradation, and light-sensitive dyes from my analytical science projects at National Museums Scotland.

Published books

I have published two books, Plastics: Collecting and Conserving with Colin Williamson (National Museums Scotland Publications) and Wrought in Gold and Silk: Preserving the Art of Historic Tapestries with Kathryn Hallett and Concha Herrero Carretero (NMS Publications), and two book chapters Quality Matters for Historical Plastics in The Co-Shaping of Materials and Chemists in the Twentieth Century by Pierre Teissier, Cyrus Mody and Brigitte Van Tiggelen and Chromatography in Conservation Research in Libraries by David Howell. With Matija Strlic and the Icon Heritage Science Group I wrote the Icon Heritage Science Group Ethical Sampling Guidance published by The Institute of Conservation. My proposed new monograph is Modern Materials In Decorative Arts and Fashion (working title), under review with Routledge Books for their Conservation, Museum & Heritage Studies and Library & Information Science series.
