Deputy Director for Collaborations and Partnerships

Anna Sexton is a Lecturer in Archives and Records Management at University College London. Her research is primarily focused on participatory and trauma-informed approaches to archives and record-keeping, particularly in the context of mental health and social care. Her broader research interests include the intersections between ethics, rights, and social justice across archives, record-keeping, data management and cultural heritage contexts.
