Personal profile

Research expertise

I have been a professional archaeologist since 2001 and have worked on a wide range of archaeology projects across the UK and in Iceland. I am currently a part-time Lecturer at the Archaeology Institute, University of the Highlands and Islands, where I teach postgraduate modules in Art and Archaeology: Contemporary Theory and Practice and Cultural Heritage Management. I also serve as a Trustee for the Orkney Natural History Society (Stromness Museum) and sit on the advisory panel for Scotland’s Rock Art Project (ScRAP).

My research includes various aspects of visual and material culture including prehistoric art, graffiti, stone-working, sculpture, vernacular architecture, and photography. My recent work has built on these themes to examine intersections between archaeology and contemporary art and I am involved in several trans-disciplinary art / science / heritage collaborations.
