Márcia Vilarigues works in the field of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in the area of Technical Art History and Materials Degradation. Her research is strongly shaped by interdisciplinary interests and principally focuses on the preservation of our material cultural history. In the past decade she has played a leading role in the research on the glass history and glass making, re-thinking the ways these two topics can be studied and impact other research fields. She has also helped to make technical art history, with its focus on materiality and making, one of the most prominent tools to the studies of materials degradation, seeking a close alliance with expertise in museums and conservation.
Márcia Vilarigues has developed a broad experience on the coordination of international multidisciplinary teams and her work, while having a wide scientific impact in the field of Conservation Sciences.
