Faglige interesser

Konservering av arkeologisk tre, nedbrytning av alunkonservert tre, klima i museer. 

Undervisning

Jeg underviser i treteknologi ved Konserveringsstudiet. Les mer om studiet her 

Bakgrunn

Jeg har en bachelorgrad i biokjemi fra McGill University, Montreal, Canada (1989), Master i gjenstandskonservering fra Queen's University, Kingston, Canada (1993) og en PhD i Conservation and Restoration Science fra Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademis Skoler for Arkitektur, Design og Konservering, Danmark. Jeg jobber i det tverrfaglige forskningsprosjektet Saving Oseberg, der målet er å finne rekonserveringsstrategier for å stabilisere de alunkonserverte tregjenstandene fra Oseberg samlingen.

 

Emneord: alunkonservert tre, Konservering, Osebergfunnene, arkeologisk konservering
