I'm interested in the use of digital technologies to enhance the value and accessibility of Natural History collections. In the shadow of cellular biology and recombinant genetic research, classical studies in the natural sciences receive less attention. My intention is to brush the dust off of the forgotten efforts of our scientific predecessors and their hard earned collections by exposing the wealth of information they hold to the digital age.
