We are thrilled to introduce our new Research Scientist, Dr. Meredith Sharps. Meredith joined IPI in June after a postdoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Conservation Institute, where she conducted collections-based research in the microanalysis laboratory. Meredith has a PhD in chemistry from the University of Oregon, where she gained experience in a variety of material characterization methods while studying nanomaterials used in lithography applications. Her position at IPI includes managing the operation of IPI’s testing services and performing research related to materials used for the storage, transport, and display of cultural heritage collections.
