From caring for Charles Darwin’s specimens to decolonising museum collections, explore the career of the Natural History Museum’s Miranda Lowe.

Miranda Lowe is principal curator of crustacea at the Natural History Museum where, as an expert in crustacea and cnidaria, she has looked after historically important specimens, such as those collected by Charles Darwin, for nearly 30 years. As we learn more about the impact of climate change and ocean acidification on our marine biosphere, find out about Miranda’s efforts researching some of the most vulnerable species and ecosystems under the sea, alongside her acclaimed work decolonising museum collections, and highlighting structural racism in natural history. 

This is a free drop-in event with limited capacity. Places will be available on a first come, first-served basis, but please refer to the Science Museum’s website for guidance on booking tickets for general admission.
