Alayne completed her undergraduate degree last millennium at the University of Canberra. She has worked in several institutions as an objects conservator – the Australian War Memorial (specialising in firearms, edged weapons and Large Technology), the Powerhouse Museum and Museum Victoria (Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks and the Immigration Museum).

She has been at Sydney University Museums for over ten years, looking after Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and quarantine matters, non-destructive testing as well as exhibitions, loans and general collection care. With preparations for the Chau Chak Wing Museum underway, Alayne is involved with the design and specifications of a new museum building and preparing objects for exhibition, and really wishes she could fit more into her day.
