A Multinuclear Solid-State NMR Study for Understanding Aging and Degradation Processes in Cultural Heritage Objects,’ funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF). The team has recently been awarded a second NSF grant to study soap formation with the project ‘Water-Mediated Transport of Ions and Molecules in Ionomeric Paint Films: an Integrated Multitechnique Investigation.’
