Matthias Kocsis, Master student

Project: Biomineralization of stone monuments.

Matthias is student in conservation-restoration at the Bern university of the Arts. He has undertaken his master project under my suoervision to understand the chemical process behind the biomineralisation of stone, a conservation procedure that aims at regenerating and reenforcing the surface of weathered stones. Matthias’s project is thought to be the first step towards the development of a chemical imaging procedure for the assessment and understanding of the biomineralization process.
