Sarah Kenderdine is not an architect, but an archeologist working on numerous heritage sites around the world including China, India, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. She was awarded her PHD entitled "in-situ: Immersive Architectures for the Embodiment of Culture and Heritage" and is at the forefront of new methods of digitally capturing and publicly exhibiting built and cultural heritage through interactive augmented reality in libraries, art galleries and museums all around the world.

Her virtual environments and applications are also being adopted by the sciences to provide solutions for research in big data.

Her laboratories work on the application of high fidelity data acquisition technologies, new virtual environment design (portable and permanent installations), computer graphics, data mining, high-speed networking, visual and sonic analytics and knowledge visualization—to reframe engagement with tangible and intangible heritage.

Sarah is Professor at University of New South Wales Art & Design where she is the founding director of the transdisciplinary Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre), pioneering new visualization infrastructures and projects across the arts and sciences. In addition she is the Director of the Laboratory for Innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (iGLAM), Deputy director for the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA) and Head of Special Projects for Museum Victoria since 2003.

Sarah's recent Awards include:

• Council for Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Prize for Distinctive Work in 2014

• Inaugural Australian Arts in Asia Awards Innovation Award in 2013.

In 2016 Sarah was elected President of the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities.

In 2017 she will take up the position of professor in digital museology at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland.
