Senior Paper Conservator, Bodleian Libraries
IIC 2014 Hong Kong Congress: An Unbroken History: Conserving East Asian Works of Art and Heritage

Robert co-presented a paper: From Quanzhou to Oxford: an account of the Selden Map of China and its conservation.  “Overall, the 5-day Congress gave a broader context to the conservation of SE Asian books and art on paper within my own area of conservation. The papers provoked lively debate, raising issues of new and innovative approaches alongside traditional methods and materials.  It was an invaluable opportunity to further my own knowledge in the conservation of East Asian materials, and will greatly benefit my conservation work in Asian collections at the Bodleian.”
