Brooklyn, NY
Emily Frank is an objects conservator; a PhD Candidate at the Institute for Study of the Ancient World at NYU; and a recent graduate of the joint MS in Conservation of Artistic & Historic Works and MA in History of Art & Archaeology at the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University (NYU). Prior to her graduate work at NYU, Emily completed an MA in Principles of Conservation at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London (UCL), in 2014 and a BA in Art History with minors in Chemistry and Archaeology at McGill University in 2011. Emily’s professional and academic interests center around research in conservation. In particular, she is interested in high-throughput analysis of conservation and technical data and new applications of computational and multispectral imaging technology to cultural heritage. These techniques serve a variety of diverse objectives. The goals of her current research in these realms can be grouped into three categories: (1) large-scale (re-)assessment of past treatment; (2) better understanding of artist practice/manufacture; and (3) development of new tools for documentation of ephemeral objects or objects with severely limited access.
