Biography

I received my BA in Anthropology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014 and my MPhil in Archaeology from the University of Cambridge in 2015.  My MPhil dissertation explored sexuality as a theme in Bronze Age Scandinavian rock art, and a methodology for understanding patterns of association between rock art figures and elements.

Research

  • Bronze Age (northern) Europe
  • Rock Art
  • Human-animal relationships
  • Archaeology of gender
  • Archaeology of sexuality
  • Household and settlement archaeology

My PhD reseach focusses on depictions of animals in Scandinavian Southern Tradition rock art from the Bronze Age.  My primary research questions centre on human conceptualisations of animal nature, and implications for human-animal interactions.  I am also involved in the excavation of the Bronze Age tell settlement at Százhalombatta in Hungary (http://sax.matricamuzeum.hu/).
