Curator qualifications

I am currently re-editing Plant Names Simplified for 5M Publishing. I have worked in education for eleven years and supervised degree students' projects and thesis work. I am a Fellow of the Linnean Society, a Chartered Horticulturist and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture. 
My interests are in Californian natives collected and propagated by Theodore Payne. I set up and curated the Theodore Payne Collection at Moulton College, Northamptonshire. One aim being to identify plants that would be suitable for future landscape use in the UK.
