Personal profile

Academic Background

I am interested in the political, economic and social role of archaeology in the modern world, and what heritage means for development in Latin America. I hold a BA in Archaeology and Anthropology (University of Cambridge), an MA in Public Archaeology (UCL), and an MRes in Social Sciences Research Methods (UEA, International Development) focusing on Impact Evaluation methods.

My PhD research sits at the intersection of public archaeology and development evaluation. It seeks to identify appropriate methods to evaluate the impacts of archaeological sites and projects as a resource for development in Peru and Ecuador.

Before joining UEA, I worked as a Research Assistant on the Seshat: Global History Databank project and as an archaeological field assistant on the One River Project and the Proyecto de Investigaciones Arqueológicas Samaca in Peru. I have also worked and volunteered in heritage projects in the UK and Kenya. More recently, I have worked as a Research Assistant in evaluation for the Tomorrow's Cities project in Quito, assisting with the co-creation process of a digital platform on disaster risk management aimed at teenagers.
