I was honoured to be nominated as the recipient of the Marsh Award for Mineralogy (2016).
The Marsh Awards recognise unsung heroes who have made a major contribution to the promotion of palaeontology or mineralogy in the UK and abroad. These contributions could include:
- popular publications
- collecting and donation of natural history collections to museums
- superb preparation or conservation of specimens in public collections
- artistic or technical innovations
The Award was presented by Brian Marsh OBE, at a ceremony at the Natural History Museum, London on 6 February 2017.
Thank you to everyone concerned with my nomination and selection as the winner.
