I've got a variety of interests - museums and collections, of course - also Electronic Visualisation and the Arts conferences (http://www.eva-london.org), monitoring planning applications on behalf of the CPRE (Campaign for the Protection of Rural England) and owning a beautiful field in Dorset.
New book just out! - Museums and Silent Objects, written with Francesca Monti. Intrigued? sneak a peek at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/silent-objects. My three previous published books: Fragments of the World: the uses of museum collections (my fave!); Managing conservation in museums (2 editions); and Digital collections: museums and the information age. Also lots of articles in my publications list: http://www.suzannekeene.info.
My most recent research project caused quite a stir - are the stored collections of museums properly available to the public? 90% of museum objects are in store: Collections for people: museums' stored collections as a public resource: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/storedcollections/.
In the recent past I've directed the MA in Museum Studies at University College London. My main career has been in senior management in museums, running the collections, most recently as Head of Collections Management in the Science Museum and Head of Conservation in the Museum of London. In both museums, I developed and introduced many new ways of managing and planning for collections care and digitisation. Museum collections conservation has been an excellent foundation for developing my current interest in energy efficiency as it is critically important to keep collections in conditions of stable temperature and humidity.
