Giulia Franceschin

Post-Doc Researcher
Post Doc
Cultural Heritage Technologies
Research center

Post-doctoral researcher in Conservation Chemistry and Materials at the Center of Cultural Heritage Technology of the IIT in Venice. Giulia is specialized in the design and study of complex solid materials and nano-structured inorganic systems. Her research is actually focusing on the multi-scale analysis of the physicochemical and structural properties of ancient materials (ceramics, metal alloys, glassy surfaces), to improve the understanding of the alteration mechanisms involved, and on the design of innovative protective strategies based on non-toxic and sustainable formulations.

In 2020, Giulia obtained an appointment as associate professor at the University of Paris. She has previously held PostDoc positions at French CNRS and at the École Normale Supérieure of Paris-Saclay,  when she collaborated with the SOLEIL Synchrotron in Paris and the C2RMF at the Louvre Museum. She was awarded her PhD in Surfaces, Interfaces and Functional Materials at the University of Paris Diderot in 2017.
