Research

My research focuses on the application of archaeometric methods to study the sourcing, manufacturing and consumption of metals in past societies.

I am currently investigating the changing use of copper alloys in the Persian Gulf and adjacent regions from Late Antiquity to the early Islamic period.  This project is funded by the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme and will focus initially on the excavated assemblages from Siraf and Kush.

My MPhil dissertation explored the changing supply of copper alloys in West Africa, including the source of metals used in the production of the Benin bronzes.
