Biography

Rosie Grayburn joined the Scientific Research and Analysis Laboratory at Winterthur in 2017 as Associate Scientist and Manager, after seven years in industrial and academic research. Her research interests focus on material degradation in diverse environments, from marine archeological artefacts to modern outdoor bronzes, and the in-depth analysis of conservation treatments used to slow down these processes.

Rosie received an MSci in Chemistry from Imperial College London in 2010, and a joint PhD from the University of Ghent (Belgium) and Warwick University (UK) in 2015 during which time she conducted research into monitoring corrosion processes in heritage metals using spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques. As part of her doctoral research, she also held a science internship at the Mary Rose Museum (UK) and developed a fruitful collaboration with the Institute of Fine Arts in Vienna to research silver corrosion by anthropogenic gases.

From 2015 to 2017 she held a postdoctoral fellowship in conservation science at the Getty Conservation Institute conducting research into coatings for outdoor bronzes, in collaboration with J. Paul Getty Museum sculpture conservators and ion probe specialists at UCLA and the University of Delaware.

Rosie has held teaching fellowships at the Department of Art History, University College London and the Department of Physics, Warwick University. She is a very enthusiastic teacher, including the promotion and dissemination of student research, and is interested in applying new pedagogic theory to conservation science education.
