Congratulations to Elaine Miles who has successfully completed all requirements for her PhD. As per her citation Elaine investigated the extension of laser speckle based imaging methods to new problems in cultural materials conservation. She showed that it was possible to image underdrawings, obtain in-situ information about canvas paintings and study the temporal behaviour of drying paint. Her research will inform new approaches to characterising cultural materials.
Elaine is now forging a successful career at the Bureau of Meteorology where she is a Senior Ocean Climatologist.
