My main research interests are: how our past use of energy informs present and future energy use; and the history and practice of innovation.
I am usually the one people come to when they need help with technology that is used to capture, store, transmit or receive information.
I specialise in nineteenth century Australian and Pacific photography and the links between science and photography.
My speciality area started as computing and mathematics, but now extends into other areas of IT.
I’m obsessed with guitars and rock music; however, my path to curator has been more one of Museum knowledge rather than specialist of a particular collection area.
My specialty area is the transport collection – I’ve researched everything from a steam car to a tram hearse, luxurious railway carriages to a shearer’s bicycle.
My specialty area is visual communications – graphic design, new media design and commercial photography.
I like to think I’m a ‘jack of all trades’ but I know quite a lot about the history of the Australian merino, early plastics technology, scientific instruments, health and medical devices.
