Hello from a new member of the team!

Hello there,

My name is Emma and I have recently joined the department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan to assist with this year’s International Training Programme at the British Museum.

My role will involve helping with logistics, admin and other organisational aspects of the ITP. I will also be maintaining contact with ITP participants, so expect lots of emails from me if you are taking part in 2014!

I have previously worked for the Visitor Services Department here at the museum, helping visitors get the best out of their experience and to ensure the safety of the objects and galleries. Before joining the British Museum I worked as an English teacher, and volunteered for the Fulbright Summer Institute and the International Student House.

I have an MA in American Studies from King’s College London, where I specialised in built environments.

As a native Londoner I am thrilled to be working at one of my favourite cultural institutions, and cannot wait to introduce the participants of ITP 2014 to my home city (and the rest of the UK, of course!)
