Sarah Reiff Conell, Lingdong Huang, Matthew Lincoln, and Golan Levin at the NGA, October 2019

In October of 2019, I was part of a team from Pittsburgh that participated in the National Gallery of Art’s Datathon in Washington DC. To learn more about the team members, our project, and explore the visualizations – check out the website that Matthew Lincoln built called “National Neighbors: Distant Viewing the National Gallery of Art’s ‘collection of collections'”.

The University of Pittsburgh also highlighted our work in a Pittwire article.


During the summer of 2017, I had the great privilege to intern at the National Gallery of Art in DC.  To learn more about my fellow interns or about this opportunity generally, check out this press release.


In the summer of 2016, I received funding from the DAAD to improve my German language skills in Freiburg, Germany. I attended the Goethe Institut in the mostly sunny and always beautiful city in Baden-Württemberg. My language skills benefited tremendously, and it was a joy to live in a place which blends sustainability with picturesque historic buildings and a breathtaking landscape.


I was fortunate to have the opportunity recently to catch up with the Landmarks program at my alma mater, UT Austin. I deeply enjoyed my time with the preservation guild, and I know it was an important moment in my life and my career. Hopefully this small interview helps get the word out to future interns and perhaps even the wider world.

If you want to know more about the wonderful work of Landmarks, check out their website and see the works under their care.
