I am a landscape archaeologist interested in human-environment interaction, landscape perceptions, identity and social relations, particularly in and around wetlands. I completed my BA in Ancient History and Archaeology at Durham University (2011) and hold an MPhil in European Prehistory from the University of Cambridge (2012). I worked as an assistant curator in the archaeology department of the Drents Museum (Assen, the Netherlands), before starting an AHRC-funded PhD project on the later prehistoric East Anglian Fens at Durham University in October 2014. I undertook placements at the British Museum (UK) and the Moesgaard Museum (Denmark) and worked as a research assistant at the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (2019-2020). Currently I'm a research assistant on the 'Wet Futures' project which studies wetland landscapes and heritage in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland. For this project I will interview a variety of stakeholders in different wetland areas about their understanding of these landscapes and the heritage within them.
