Jens Stenger—an Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral fellow in conservation science at Harvard University Art Museums—taking samples from Saint Roch by Giovanni Canavesio. Stenger is working on a collaborative project to better understand the unusual painting technique of distemper on canvas. Postdoctoral fellowships are a traditional route for scientists to receive additional specialized training in conservation science. Photo: Narayan Khandekar.
