About me: Originally from Bulgaria, I moved to Newcastle in 2013 and to Edinburgh in 2017. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an MSc in Book History and Material Culture. Before joining the SPL, I worked for different heritage institutions in Edinburgh such as Historic Environment Scotland and the Signet Library.

My favourite poetry quote: I’ll enter quietly, softly sit / And gaze upon you in the dark./ Then, when my eyes have gazed their fill, / I’ll kiss you and depart. (Nikola Vaptsarov, ‘On Parting’)
My favourite poets are: Sylvia Plath, Richard Siken, Douglas Dunn, Petya Dubarova, Blaga Dimitrova, Walt Whitman, Rupi Kaur, Emily Dickinson.
When not at work I’m normally either baking, hiking or spoiling my cat rotten.
