This year, Sarah completed a PhD at the University of Birmingham, UK, and the National Museum Wales, where she studied the biogeography of Palaeozoic wetland plant communities from the ancient European and Chinese landmasses. Her research covers ecological, evolutionary and migrational processes, as well as the quality of the fossil record. She also has an MSc in palaeobiology from the University of Bristol, UK, and an MSci in geoscience from Royal Holloway, University of London.
She is particularly interested in the accessibility and utility of geological and natural history museum collections, having used many around the world — from Chicago, Illinois, to Beijing — in the course of her research. Sarah has volunteered at museums for many years, including the Lapworth Museum of Geology in Birmingham and the Bristol City Museum, and is keen to promote the value of collections and palaeontology to all.
