Research

My PhD research will use simulation-based inference methods to explore the factors that may have governed the emergence and evolution of ancient and historical road systems. In particular, my research will examine the spatial and social characteristics of the Roman road network in Roman Britain with a focus on how the road network affected the social, economic, and political organisation of territories.
