Ing. Muscat Azzopardi graduated in mechanical engineering from the University of Malta in 2001. Her specializations were material sciences and manufacturing. After working in the manufacturing industry for 4 years, Ing. Muscat Azzopardi returned to the University of Malta to read for an M.Sc. in Conservation Technology for Masonry Buildings; a course that combined her love for art and history with her knowledge of material sciences. She graduated with a distinction in 2012 with a dissertation entitled: Investigation of Hydraulic Lime Mixes Used Locally in Building Conservation and Their Effect on Globigerina Limestone. Since then, Ing. Muscat Azzopardi worked both as an employee as well as self-employed on a number of projects that combined, where possible, her engineering and conservation skills and ethics. Between 2013/14 and 2017/18, she also worked as a part-time lecturer within the Department of Conservation and Built Heritage, Faculty of the Built Environment, University of Malta. The study credit covered the characteristics and deterioration of ancillary materials used/present in the conservation of masonry buildings namely metals, ceramics and glass. Ing. Muscat Azzopardi has now returned to the University of Malta as a part-time Research Support Officer on two projects: IPERION HS whose main aim is to establish and operate an Integrating Activity for a distributed pan-European research infrastructure, opening key national research facilities of recognised excellence in heritage science and the EO4HBCS Project under the MCST Space Research Programme which seeks to study and monitor roofs of historic buildings and compare them to data collected from modified and modern materials using satellite, UAV and in-situ data collecting measures.
