Associate Research Scientist
New York, New York
Federica Pozzi, Associate Research Scientist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, leads the Network Initiative for Conservation Science (NICS), a pilot program aiming to support New York–area museums that do not have access to a state-of-the-art scientific research facility. Federica earned her PhD in chemical sciences from the University of Milan, Italy, and, as part of her doctoral studies, she spent one year at The Met as a visiting scholar. After conducting post-doctoral research at The City College of New York and The Met, Federica held an Andrew W. Mellon fellowship in conservation science at the Art Institute of Chicago, and then joined the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum as the first scientist on staff.
