He looks the part, too: gray hair expertly trimmed, well-cut suit. He’s lived in Moscow and Hong Kong and worked for Deutsche Bank, the Russian financial firm Troika Dialog, and Citibank.

conserving tutankhamen’s tomb

Since its discovery by archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922, the tomb of Tutankhamen has become one of the most famous cultural heritage sites in the world. However, the tomb’s status as a “must-see” attraction for visitors to Egypt led to concerns regarding its condition. A multiyear collaboration between the Getty Conservation Institute and the Egyptian authorities sought to preserve the tomb and protect it from damage over the long-term. Completed in fall 2018, the project has helped preserve this important site for future generations.
