Los Angeles, CA
Michaela Paulson is currently an Assistant Conservator at the American Museum of Natural History, working with Native American material from the Northwest Coast. She received her B.A. magna cum laude in Archaeology with a minor in Art History from Tufts University in 2012 and spent the next three years at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, immersed in studio art and the technical processes behind modern artistic creations, especially for metals and ceramics. Simultaneously, she was a pre-program intern in the Objects Conservation Lab at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Michaela is a recent graduate from the UCLA/Getty Master's Program ('18), during which she completed four graduate internships: on-site in Italy with a Rutgers University-led excavation at the site of Vacone working on in situ mosaics and wall paintings, the National Park Service branch in Lowell, MA at the Boott Mills, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University. Michaela is interested in the integration of treatment approaches and materials between specialties as well as outreach and promotion of the field to professionals in allied fields.
