Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar, UCLA/Getty Conservation Program

Research Interests

Non-invasive multispectral imaging and spectroscopic techniques for documentation, monitoring and diagnosis of movable and immovable objects

Research Summary

The focal point for the post doc research is non-invasive multispectral imaging and spectroscopic techniques for documentation, monitoring and diagnosis of movable and immovable objects. Previous research incorporated non-invasive applications of remote UV-induced fluorescence lidar (light detection and ranging) using mobile systems for large architectural surfaces with studies performed on site in Sweden and Italy. The research objectives focus primarily on sustainable conservation and interdisciplinary research with applications for in situ documentation and diagnosis.
