Miriam Andrews holds a Batchelor of Archaeology from the University of Southampton, and an EPSRC funded PhD in Archaeology and Materials Science, also awarded by the University of Southampton. After completing her doctoral studies, Miriam briefly worked in commercial geophysics, processing data produced by ground penetrating radar to image subsurface features and map the internal construction elements of buildings. Exposure to the construction industry during this time brought the vital protection of heritage sites into sharp focus and Miriam decided to shift her attention to the protection and management of historic buildings and collections. She thereafter worked delivering preventive conservation measures for the National Trust for two years, with a particular focus on assessing environmental conditions, storage decant and reorganisation, establishing daily and deep cleaning routines, and monitoring the condition of interiors and objects. Miriam joined the Institute of Sustainable Heritage in June 2023 with the aspiration to use her multidisciplinary academic background and professional experience to translate academic research into real solutions for heritage conservation issues and questions.
