Personal profile

Research expertise

My focus is on the relationship between Art and Archaeology in its broadest sense, from the interpretation of prehistoric visual culture, to the intersections between contemporary art practice and the archaeological imagination. My broader research includes various aspects of visual and material culture, such as stone-carving and sculpture, vernacular buildings, prehistoric art and architecture, graffiti and mark-making, museum studies, and conceptual art.

My professional background is in heritage management and archaeology, with experience spanning community development and regeneration, museum curation, commercial archaeological fieldwork, and higher education research and teaching. Over the past ten years, my work has increasingly explored experimental and creative approaches to archaeology, and I have undertaken a number of trans-disciplinary art / archaeology projects and residencies.
