Biography

I am an archaeologist (Ph.D.) with interests in pottery seriation, radiocarbon chronology, household archaeology, ceramic style, identity, communal food consumption, settlement archaeology and analysis of activity areas at the site level. I am also interested in statistics applied to archaeological data and in multidimensional scaling techniques, in particular Correspondence Analysis. I am currently seeking a role in academic research, and/or education/teaching at undergraduate/graduate level.
