About: Brittany Dolph

I'm a first-year student in the UCLA/Getty Master's Program in the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials. I completed pre-program conservation work at the National Museum of American History and National Gallery of Art, as well as archaeological fieldwork in cultural resources management for the Public Archaeology Facility at State University of New York at Binghamton. I'll be spending my summer internships at the Southwest Museum in L.A., and the Athanasakeion Archaeological Museum of Volos, Greece, and really look forward to working at both museums. In my free time, I continue to research methods for convincing Ryan Gosling to become spokesperson for the American Institute of Conservation.
