Mari Hagemeyer graduated from the University of Maryland in 2013, receiving a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in French. The following August, she started working as an intern with the U.S. Navy’s Naval History and Heritage Command in the Underwater Archaeology Branch. She spent nine months working with the UAB, on a diverse set of projects ranging from collections management to historical research. After leaving the UAB, she also worked as an intern with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s archaeological conservation lab, and with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s objects lab.
Mari’s focus in her undergraduate program was on soft materials, and she hopes to be able to explore this subject further into the conservation of historical polymeric materials while studying with UCLA/Getty’s program. She is also very interested in conservation ethics and the interplay between anthropological studies and modern-day peoples.
