Dr Anoush Simon BA, MSc, PhD
I have been a member of the Dept since 2003, and completed my PhD in 2004. Before this, I worked in the library at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and also worked in the book trade for several years. Between completing my MSc (Sheffield University) and commencing my PhD studies, I worked at the North West Film Archive in Manchester and for BBC Information and Archives in London. I have an enduring interest in film and photo archives.
