Dr Sarah W Phillips

Research Leader


As research leader for Digital Collections, I lead a team tasked with developing and improving access to Kew’s Herbarium Collections through digitisation. Our focus is to develop innovative methods to accelerate the rate of specimen imaging and label data capture by trialling different workflows. We also curate the herbarium specimen catalogue and manage digitisation projects.
