My research focuses on the built environment and material culture of Ancient Egypt. This research has touched on colonialism, urbanism, and domestic, funerary and religious architecture in ancient Egypt and Nubia (modern Sudan). The majority of my work has dealt with New Kingdom material, particularly that of the late Eighteenth Dynasty although, my publications have also touched on Old and Middle Kingdom material. I am also increasingly interested in construction in the Predynastic and Early Dynastic Periods. The reconstruction of ancient buildings through drawings, models and digital media is another research interest.
I am currently engaged in a field project at Sesebi, Northern Sudan, in which we are assessing the nature of New Kingdom colonialism in Nubia. I am also in the process of writing up fieldwork in the North Palace at Amarna.
