Her position involves providing curatorial, research and administrative support to curators working on portraits from 1485 to our day. This includes supporting the development of exhibitions and displays, collections management and interpretation.

Louise is in the final stages of her PhD at Nottingham which focuses on the sugar banquet in early modern England. "In utilising sources such as household accounts, surviving material culture, architecture and descriptions of sugar banquets, I aim to articulate their status and purpose within the wider historical context."
