2013 QEST J. Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust Scholar - Easel Painting Conservation

After seven years undertaking public policy research for central government Aalia was already well versed in research skills and methodology when she embarked upon a new career and undertook a postgraduate diploma in paintings conservation at the Hamilton Kerr Institute. She has since gained valuable experience working in situ at the Clothworkers’ Company in the City of London.

A QEST J. Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust Scholarship enabled Aalia to undertake a 12-month V&A internship in paintings conservation.
