Emerging heritage science researcher seminar - 9th June

Join us and the Icon Heritage Science Group online on 9th June, 16.00-17.30 for the second in a new series of four events to showcase the research of emerging heritage science researchers.

This second session features talks from Victor Jefferys (Conservation Scientist at the National Museum of the Royal Navy) on "Investigating the potential use of inorganic nanoparticles as antifungal agents for pre-treating timber on HMS Victory"; and Tamar Hestrin-Grader, Marie-Noëlle Grison, Annelena de Groot, Maria Laura Petruzzellis, Gadis (Adis) Fitriana Putri, Glennis E. Rayermann (Research Associates for the Netherlands Institute for Conservation+Art+Science+) on "Having fun feeling lost: developing methodology to investigate the heritage science ecosystem".

We encourage the speakers and participants to discuss the research that is being presented and aim to provide a supportive environment for sharing information about projects, and gaining input from colleagues and fellow researchers and students.

Prof. Ian C. Freestone will also talk about his work as Professor of Archaeological Materials and Technologies at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, and take part in a wider discussion about developing a career in the field of heritage science.
