7th July - heritage science student and emerging professional seminar open for bookings

The third (free) seminar to showcase and discuss the research of heritage science students and emerging professionals will take place on 7th July, 16.00-17.30 and is now open for registration.

The Icon Heritage Science Group and NHSF are jointly running a series of four seminars in which heritage science students or emerging professionals present their research and discuss it with attendees.

The third seminar will take place on 7th July, 16.00-17.30 and you can register (free) at this Eventbrite page.

As with the previous events, this session features two short talks of 10-15 minutes from emerging researchers and students, plus a talk from a more experienced professional about their career path. The series embraces all aspects of heritage science and aims to connect researchers and provide a safe space to discuss ideas and progress. The talks will be followed by an open question/discussion session in which all attendees are encouraged to take part.

Our speakers for this event on 7th July are:

  • Marie De Groeve - PhD candidate, University of Antwerp, Cultural Heritage Sciences - "The effect of vertical urban greening on historical building materials"
  • Cathryn Harvey - PhD candidate, Cranfield Forensic Institute, Cranfield University - "Investigating the infestation: Understanding and communicating deathwatch beetle activity on HMS Victory"
