Research summary

I am a heritage scientist, studying:

  • New technologies for preventive conservation, including the development of tools for the analysis of environmental data
  • Transport phenomena in heritage materials and microenvironments. This often involves Computational Fluid Dynamics, for example of pollutants, rain and particulate matter. 
  • Citizen heritage science and crowd-sourcing in historic sites and museums
  • Data-driven approaches to the analysis of large collections, with the objective of informing conservation management and decision-making.
