Dr. Radpour will join the Department of Art Conservation as an Assistant Professor beginning August 1, 2023.
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Roxanne Radpour (she/her) will join the Department of Art Conservation as an Assistant Professor (a joint appointment with UD's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) beginning August 1, 2023. She will contribute to the imaging and documentation curriculum in ARTC and develop innovative approaches to studying cultural heritage. Dr. Radpour is a conservation scientist and received her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the Archaeomaterials Research Group. Her research utilized imaging and spectroscopic techniques to study the materials of paintings and other decorated cultural heritage objects. Of particular focus were non-invasive, portable technologies, including novel modes of imaging spectroscopy, for fieldwork analyses within archaeological and historical sites.
"I'm very much looking forward to joining UD this fall and to begin working with the amazing WUDPAC students," says Dr. Radpour. "This is a wonderful opportunity to teach and collaborate with undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty from various programs across the university (ARTC, Winterthur, ECE, etc.) and to continue growing within the field of conservation. Very excited for what's to come!"
Dr. Radpour is currently the Charles E. Culpeper Fellow in the Scientific Research Department at the National Gallery of Art (NGA), where she is a member of the Chemical Imaging Laboratory. Her research interests include the development and application of imaging spectroscopy and chemical sensing technologies, as well as 2D and 3D material mapping approaches for conservation science. Prior to joining the Gallery, Roxanne was the senior Andrew W. Mellon Conservation Fellow in The Metropolitan Museum of Art's (The Met) Department of Scientific Research, where she introduced and applied imaging spectroscopy for the analysis of objects in The Met's collection as well as with the Network Initiative for Conservation Science program to support studies of collection materials in local New York institutions. She also holds MS degrees in Physics (Univ. Minnesota, Twin Cities) and Materials Science and Engineering (UCLA).
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Radpour to the Department of Art Conservation!
