I completed a BSc, MA and PhD in archaeology at Durham University, and am now a PDRA with the EAMENA project. My PhD examined the distribution of Bronze Age tombs in Southeastern Arabia. My areas of interest include the use of GIS and remote sensing, and the landscape archaeology of Arabia and the wider Middle East.
