Collaborations Abroad

Last summer one of our students, Marcie Wiggins, participated in an 8-week fellowship for cultural heritage science research at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, NL (June-July 2016). The NSF funded program was hosted by Northwestern University /Art Institute of Chicago Center for Scientific Studies in Arts (NU-ACCESS), the Rijksmuseum, and the University of Amsterdam.

During that time, Marcie worked primary on studying and reproducing the migration of arsenic through multilayer paint films. She also got to visit museums and laboratories through out the Netherlands while experiencing Dutch culture from windmills to stroopwafel.
