This research focused on the evaluation of nanotechnology-based cleaning systems designed to tackle the challenging treatments of modern and contemporary art. In 2013 Lora received a PhD in chemistry from Georgetown University and the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, for her research on the design and application of polymer gel materials that could be used for the surface cleaning of heritage materials. Following her move to the UK as a Newton International Fellow she completed a year of research at the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis at the University of Cambridge, and a year at the Material Studies Laboratory, Department of History of Art, UCL. Lora was on the organising committee and on the Gels in Conservation Conference.
