I work on the project as a post doctoral research fellow. I work across all three case studies but my own research is mainly focussed on the Powell-Cotton Museum. I have undertaken research trips to both Botswana and Namibia for the project. I have previously worked at the University of Sussex in a role developing the Making African Connections project and funded by the Research Development Fund. I have also worked at the University of Arts London, the V&A Museum, Middlesex University and The Open University. I was a participant in the Fashioning Africa CollectionPanel at Brighton Museum and am currently co-editing a book (with Heather Akou and JoAnn McGregor) entitled Creating African Fashion Histories. Where I have substantially contributed to entries on this archive you will see the identifier NSty.
