.    Current interests are in the following areas:

Applications of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis to art conservation and archaeology. FTIR is used for identification and characterization of artists' materials such as grounds, pigments, varnishes, coatings, etc. and XRF is used for the detection of heavy elements and for the analysis of bronzes, silver alloys, etc.
