According to Kristen, “I’m excited to be working at AIHP after working with them for so many years.” She added: “We have a great team and it feels like I am coming home. I’m looking forward to seeing and describing the objects we are digitizing as many of them have been in storage for a while and this project will allow them to breath fresh air in the digital realm.”
