Jo Willey, a HAMR Masters by Research student, has had two papers accepted at the METAL2013: International Conference on Metal Conservation taking place in Edinburgh in September. The papers represent two different aspects of her Master’s research at Lincoln: The non-invasive characterisation of a collection of 20th century religious medals for an online museum catalogue using X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and Evaluating the use of SEM-EDX analysis to determine the effects of surface cleaning treatments in metals conservation.

Jo is currently working as a metals conservator for the British Museum.
