With a background in palaeontology, Liz Hide has spent more than 20 years working in museums as a curator, consultant and as University of Cambridge Museums Officer, where she enabled the eight university museums and Botanic Garden to work together , collectively increaseing their reach and profile.  In the Sedgwick, she is keen to enable wider audiences to engage with research and researchers, and for students to gain transferable skills and experience through the Museum. She has a particular interest in broadening access to the Museum, and developing a greater role for it within the wider community.

As a independent consultant she specialises in advocacy, strategy and public engagement in museums, with a particular focus on the university museum sector.


I am always happy to talk with researchers in any aspect of the Earth sciences about how the museum can help engage the public with your research - please do get in touch!
