PROJECT
INTERESTS

I am currently the Manager of the Plant Image Collection at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. I curate and digitise the Image collection and make these images available on the ANBG’s website. I manage the day to day running of the image collection and also provide images for various projects/events at the ANBG and other scientific, educational and commercial use.

I work with various databases such as ANHSIR, Photo and Kwikpik; interpret and enter botanical information from historic and herbarium specimen labels, images and illustrations.
