She continued her research in astrophysics in France and at the University of Bristol before changing her research career to heritage science after a brief period at the National Gallery in London. ISAAC Lab is focussed on the development of non-invasive imaging, spectroscopy and remote sensing instruments and data science methods for cultural heritage research and practice, as well as interdisciplinary research in art conservation, history and archaeology, which led to the recent Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Advancing Cultural Heritage Science. Her research interest also includes interdisciplinary research in historical global connections.
