College position:

I am currently a Researcher on the Celtic Coin Index Digital project, I run fieldwork on rock art sites in Sweden, and I am the Assistant Editor of the Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society. I was recently a Research Fellow at Griffith University (Australia). Prior to that, I was a Researcher on the Leverhulme-funded project 'European Celtic Art in Context' at the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College. I have also worked as a maritime archaeologist in the UK. I completed my PhD in Archaeology at the University of Reading on Scandinavian prehistoric rock art (published in 2015: http://www.oxbowbooks.com/oxbow/prehistoric-rock-art-in-scandinavia.html). I have an MA Distinction in Maritime Archaeology from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. Prior to my settlement in the UK, I completed my BFA (University of California, Santa Cruz) and MFA (Tufts University, SMFA) in fine art, art history and museum studies.

Later prehistoric rock art and portable art in Europe; Bronze Age and Iron Age archaeology in Northern and Northwestern Europe; coastal, fluvial, and intertidal archaeology; human responses to environmental change
