In 2016 she was awarded a doctoral fellowship by the BerGSAS where she is member of the program Ancient Objects and Visual Studies . Her project also contributes to Topoi`s research group (C-4) Pictorial Constructions of Space(s). Her project aims to develop a conservatory strategy to the handling of the ceramic founds at Tacht-e Suleiman.

By developing a concept of preservation and presentation Katharina Kuntz intends to make these artifacts accessible for a broader audience within a museological setting.
