Dr Capucine Korenberg

Dr Capucine Korenberg has worked as a conservation scientist at the British Museum for more than 15 years. Her research focusses on assessing the suitability of conservation treatments for artworks and antiquities and understanding the deterioration processes in these objects with a view of finding ways to better preserve them. Following a major exhibition on Hokusai (the artist who designed The Great Wave) at the British Museum in 2017, Capucine has developed a strong interest in the study of Japanese woodblock prints.
