I enjoy sharing insights and exchanging ideas at public events and I have participated in conferences around the world, from Mexico City to Tel Aviv to Hong Kong, and online in the COVID-19 era.

On this page you’ll find a selection of presentations on open access, cultural heritage and public engagement.

If you’d like me to join your event, please get in touch.
