Research

As a rare book and paper conservator the research topics listed below are of particular interest to my work:

Cellulose Ethers 

  • A comparative table of cellulose ethers commonly used in book and paper conservation as adhesives and consolidants

Leather Consolidation

  • A practical comparison of ready-made and customized leather consolidants used to reduce “red-rot” leather degradation

Pre-Coated Repair Materials

  • Information related to selecting, making, and using conservation treatment repair materials that have been customized with adhesives one can be reactivated with water, solvent, and/or heat

Synthetic Textures

  • Methods to recreate the texture from original materials using silicon molds and acrylic media. Also known as “cast composites”
