Since the spring of 2010, there has not been a time when Ingrid has not been working, interning, or volunteering in a natural history collection. A strong commitment to collections preservation and accessibility has led Ingrid to work on projects such as the NSF-funded recuration of the Yale Peabody Museum's fluid vertebrate collections from 2010 to 2013 and the IMLS-funded zoology collections move at the Museum of Northern Arizona in 2014 and 2015. Ingrid's broad background in collections work has seen her capturing digital images and associated metadata for fish radiographs and botany specimens, participating in integrated pest management, testing for the presence of hazardous chemical in collections objects, and of course, preparing osteological specimens and mammal skins (her favorite). Having served at NMNH in various capacities since 2013, Ingrid is thrilled to continue her work as a Collections Program Technician. Ingrid is particularly fond of birds, and has a nascent, morbid fascination with arachnids.
