Research summary

I am interested in research into materials and construction techniques, especially where new scientific techniques can provide information about objects in non-destructive ways. My main interest is in pesticide residues on museum objects, and whether these residues potentially have an impact on the health of museum staff and that of other stakeholders in the collections. 


Jeremy has worked at the Pitt Rivers Museum since 2008. He trained first as a biologist, before studying Archaeological Conservation at Cardiff University. After graduating, Jeremy held a Historic Scotland ethnographic conservation internship at the Marischal Museum, University of Aberdeen. This was followed by positions at the Ashmolean Museum, the Horniman Museum, Auckland Museum and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter. He held a Clothworkers' Foundation Conservation Fellowship in 2012–13, during which he conserved and investigated the Cook voyage collections at the Pitt Rivers Museum.
