Gen Schiesser

Gen is an emerging conservator studying at the Grimwade Centre. She has an interest in the application of conservation to archaeology and studies of provenance and is currently writing her thesis on the investigation of metrology within the University of Melbourne’s Middle Eastern Manuscript Collection. By understanding how and with what units of measurements these manuscripts were scaled during their production, we may be able to locate them within time and place. Gen has also worked as an exhibition assistant with Museums Victoria and has had volunteering roles with the National Trust and the Melbourne Holocaust Museum.
