Katherine Langdon earned her MA in art conservation from SUNY Buffalo State in September 2014, after completing a year-long capstone internship with the Objects Conservation Laboratory at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She previously received her BA summa cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, where she double majored in Archaeology and Classics. Katherine was a graduate intern in conservation at the National Museum of the American Indian and with the New York University Institute of Fine Arts Excavations at Selinunte, Sicily.


Katherine runs Langdon Art Conservation, LLC, in Urbana, Illinois. She particularly enjoys working with traditional and archaeological materials, archaeological site conservation, and scientific and curatorial research. Her research interests include improving conservation techniques through scientific experimentation and the study of ancient and traditional technology. She has recently completed an investigation into the use of various volatile binding media in archaeological block lifting.
