Alice studied Modern History at the University of Oxford, then gained a Masters degree in Material Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, taught through the Pitt Rivers Museum. From 2015 she will be studying for her doctorate in the Music Faculty at Oxford University.

She has worked at several museums and collections, including the Horniman Museum, the British Museum, Royal Military School of Music Museum, and the Bate Collection of Musical Instruments.

Her interests include social history and the history of collecting, as well as the history of music, musical instruments, and how they have ended up in museum collections.
