Department of Archaeology



After successfully graduating from a Bachelor degree followed by a Master’s degree in Art History and Archaeology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), I resumed my studies by completing a second Bachelor in Ancient Oriental Languages at the same university. I then started a MPhil in Egyptology at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Dr Kate Spence, exploring institutions and functions within architectural patterns in the town of Amarna. I then worked as an archaeologist for Oxford Archaeology East, based in Cambridge before joining the Amarna Project for a season in October 2014 as well as the team of the British Museum excavating a site in North Sudan, near Dongola.
