Personal profile


I am an archaeologist specialising in geoarchaeology, which encompases an earth-science approach to archaeological investigation. Over the past 20 years I have been involved in a diverse range of international archaeological projects at some of the world’s most significant World Heritage Sites, including Gordion in Central Turkey and Butrint in southern Albania. I am currently involved in interdisciplinary research investigating the impacts of climate change on coastal heritage sites. 

Academic Background

  • B.Sc. Archaeology; University of Bradford (1997)
  • M.Sc. Geoarchaeology; University of Reading (2000)
  • Ph.D. Archaeology; University of East Anglia (2003)

Key Research Interests

My main research interests lie in the application of remote sensing techniques in archaeology and in the use of GIS technologies in reconstructing past landscapes and in developing process-based models of palaeo-environmental change. Recent research has focussed on climate driven coastal zone processes and the establishment of high resolution chronologies for landscape change.
