Personal profile

Research Expertise

After graduating from the University of Southampton with a BA Honours degree in Archaeology, I worked as a field archaeologist and geophysical surveyor on a range of developer-funded and research projects in Britain, Italy and Spain. I moved to Orkney in 2004 initially as an archaeological geophysicist and took on my present role in 2007. I completed my PhD in ‘Landscape and Society in Orkney during the First Millennium BC’ at the University of the Highlands & Islands in 2014.

My main research interests are in landscape archaeology, geophysical and field survey, and later British Prehistory, principally in Atlantic Scotland. I am particularly interested in the integration of traditional survey techniques, phenomenological and experiential approaches, and artistic practice in recording, interpreting and presenting archaeological landscapes.

Teaching Expertise

I am module leader for Archaeological Theory & Method (SCQF 7), Landscape Archaeology (SCQF 10), and Archaeological & Geophysical Survey (SCQF 11). I also contribute to a number of other modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
