Research Interests

  • Isotopic analysis
  • Palaeopathology
  • Osteoarchaeology
  • Palaeodiet
  • Medieval Archaeology

My research focusses on utilising isotopic analysis of human skeletal material to help understand palaeodiet, migration and population diversity. My current research is focussed on Medieval Cambridge and will primarily involve the analysis of skeletons excavated from St John’s Hospital, in order to understand the impact of the Plague (1348-50).


I am presently involved in the following research projects:

  • 2016-2019: ‘After the Plague: Health and History in Medieval Cambridge
