Conservation Scientist

I work in art conservation, analyzing materials to help restore objects of heritage value, and occasionally detecting fakes!

I have had the opportunity to work on varied projects with so many amazing people. I previously worked in environmental science and worked on a lot of contaminated sites in the Arctic. The variety of experiences and expertise was incredible. I am most proud to have been part of a collaborative project to remediate a cold war military site in Ivvavik National Park.

Many people have helped me throughout my career. I always think of my undergraduate thesis advisor who is an incredible and strong woman who gave me great opportunities while I was with her and continues to encourage and look out for me long after my studies deviated from her area of research.
