HI, I'M ALY SINGH

Conservator. Communicator. Change Maker.

I am a Conservator and Collections Management specialist with 5+ years of experience working with museum collections. I use my artifact handling, documentation and teamwork skills to help maintain historical collections for future generations. I have completed an MSc in Conservation Practice at Cardiff University and am currently working as an Assistant Conservation Technician at Ingenium, Canada's Science and Technology Museum Corporation.

In this portfolio I am proud to present a selection of my work for your perusal. Specializing in social history collections, I am also adept at working with archeological and agricultural collections, analytical equipment, and conservation grade lasers, and have spent much of 2020 doing hazard mitigation. I strongly believe in engagement via social media, and outside of the lab I can be found on twitter (@alysingh), tweeting about museums, heritage, diversity, and mental health, among other things.

She worked independently, managing complex tasks and made good decisions for working (...) she fully demonstrated both the intellectual capabilities and the dexterity necessary to work with cultural materials of archeological interest.
