More about me 

While my primary professional specialty is in paper conservation, I have strong interests and experience in other aspects of the field including historical bindings and the conservation of bound materials and papyrus. In addition, I hold a special interest in materials from the Islamic world, both bound and unbound, the conservation of these materials, and their codicology.
