  • Conservation

Jacqueline Riddle holds a B.Sc. with majors in Chemistry and Art History from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and a M.Sc. (Distinction) in Conservation Studies from University College London (UCL) campus in Doha, Qatar. As a graduate student, she completed internships in conservation treatment and scientific research at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the Synchrotron SOLEIL particle accelerator in Paris, France. Previously, she has worked on heritage science and conservation projects at the Department of Chemistry at McGill University, the Canadian Conservation Institute, the UCL Qatar Archaeological Materials Science Laboratory, the Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani Museum, and with a private conservation firm at the West Block of the Canadian Parliament. Most recently, she worked as a conservator at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa during their exhibition renewal. She looks forward to helping another museum renew its exhibits in her role as an objects conservator for the Museum's Transformation project.
