Dr Stavroula Golfomitsou is a Lecturer in Conservation Studies at UCL Qatar, having developed the Conservation Studies MSc to address the growing need for qualified conservators within the Gulf region. Her own research interests include the conservation and analysis of metals, the use of statistical methods in experimental design, the quantification of errors in non-destructive analysis, and risk assessment of decision-making processes in conservation. In 2009 she was seconded by the Greek Ministry of Culture to ICCROM as Laboratory Coordinator.

Dr Golfomitsou holds a PhD in Conservation of Metals from UCL and a BA in Objects Conservation from TEI Athens, Greece. She has a broad background in the analysis of metals and she has worked in Greece, Malta, Egypt, Turkey, Italy and France. Since 2001 she has taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Malta and Greece and she has delivered workshops and seminars in conservation of metals in Egypt, Oman and Peru.
