Research Summary

My research focuses on the study of two interfaces. The first interface is where materials interact with the surrounding environment. I study transport phenomena processes such as particulate matter and pollutant dispersion, plasticizer migration in historic plastics and moisture transport in porous media (in connection to processes as diverse as mould growth and the deformation of woven materials). The second interface is where technology meets preventive conservation. I am interested in exploring how new computational developments can support preventive conservation management. Currently I am studying the application of building information modelling, citizen science and system dynamics in heritage science.
