Robyn is a graduate of the Simon Fraser University department of Archaeology. In 2011, she completed her MA, Finding Middle Ground: Case Studies in Negotiated Repatriation. Robyn enjoys field, laboratory, and museum based work. She has researched and written content for several websites including the award winning Journey into Time Immemorial.
Robyn has worked and volunteered at the MAE since 2004. As a Research Associate, her studies concentrate on the applications of portable X-Ray Florescence (XRF) within a museum context. Artifact analyses using XRF can assist in better understanding how artifacts were made, where they come from, and their conservation history. Robyn also assists in database and collections management, developing and revising collections procedures, and facilitating research requests.
