Jo has extensive experience in developing exhibitions centering on science communication, particularly focusing on content and exhibit development, as well as overall project management.

Over the past ten years she has worked with national museums, attractions and academic institutions to deliver a range of message rich, high impact projects.

These projects include her work at the Natural History Museum, where she contributed to the development of the innovative Investigate Gallery and the touring exhibition ‘Predators’; ‘Move Over Einstein’ for the Institute of Physics and the Science Museum; ‘Sparking Reaction’ for British Nuclear Fuels; an energy exhibition for BP in Moscow; and feasibility research for the Wellcome Trust’s 2012 Olympics initiatives.

Since joining KCA London in 2007 Jo has led the development of a dynamic, innovative sports experience in Qatar, and of a new music-focused community experience within the redevelopment of Wembley. More recently she has managed the content development for the Mishkat, Riyadh, which explores Saudi Arabia’s atomic and renewable energy future. This included overseeing the development of around forty multimedia exhibits, and acting as the content guardian for all elements of the design and operation of the project.
