Kristen Watts

Kristen WattsI received my bachelors of science from Furman University in Greenville, SC in 2013. While there, I interned for about 6 months in Grenoble, France at an art conservation science laboratory and developed a passion for art conservation science in general. After graduation, I interned briefly at the Library of Congress before getting my masters of science in 2015 at Villanova University in Philadelphia, PA while working on a 17th century baroque era painting undergoing conservation. Currently, I'm finishing up my third year working for Dr. Jeanne Pemberton in our wonderful department of Chemistry & Biochemistry with a research focus on understanding degradation inherent in organic semiconductors Ultimately, I hope to work at a museum as an art conservation scientist to blend my love of science with my love of art and art history. When I'm not in the lab, I love contra dancing, blues dancing, circus arts (like silks or lyra) and playing board games with friends.
