Emma is a PhD student at the University of York working on a research project in collaboration with English Heritage which seeks to understand why historic graffiti matters and to whom, and whether understanding graffiti creation today can help to better understand historic mark making in the past. She has previously worked as a Learning & Community Officer and Visitor Experience Manager, alongside a variety of other museum and heritage positions. She has also undertaken placements with English Heritage as part of her PhD, including researching the history of the 19th-century women of Witley Court and as a Curatorial Assistant.
