Eve Guerry is a museum educator with over 15 years’ experience in designing object-based learning strategies for curriculum-linked learning programs and exhibitions. She has a PhD in Egyptology and extensive experience in teaching and research for Archaeology, Ancient Egypt and Ancient Israel. Prior to joining the Chau Chak Wing Museum in 2020 as Academic Engagement Curator, Eve worked as the Head of Education programs at Macquarie University’s Museum of Ancient Cultures, where she integrated museum collections into teaching and research across campus as well as into innovative learning programs for early childhood, primary and secondary school students.
