Department of Archaeology



I am a Research Assistant on the Mapping Africa’s Endangered Archaeological Sites and Monuments (MAEASaM) project, working on a variety of components of the project, including helping to design our Arches database’s structure, locating and recording archaeological sites and potential threats to their integrity (particularly in Sudan), and creating maps demonstrating the project's work.

My enthusiasm for geospatial archaeology from my undergraduate degree led me to pursue an MSc in Digital Archaeology at the University of York, within which I mostly specialised in GIS, particularly within my dissertation, which applied a variety of spatial analyses within and between buildings at Songo Mnara, in Tanzania. Following this, I participated in a graduate attachment scheme at the BIEA, acting as a remote research assistant on archaeological projects in East Africa, before taking up this position with MAEASaM.


My main professional interest is in using geospatial techniques to locate, present and analyse archaeological knowledge, especially in unconventional ways. I am also interested in maps more generally, particularly the ways that they are used by archaeologists.

Other Professional Activities

I am available and happy to help people interested in producing maps for publication.
