Biography

As the KE and Impact officer I am overseeing research impact and public engagement within the Faculty of Arts, including curating and running the Being Human Festival. My areas of specialism include heritage and place-based KE, community engagement in research and health humanities.

I am an honorary research fellow at the Department of Classics and Archeology. Before my current role I worked at the University of Leicester first as a Graduate Teaching Associate teaching Roman archeology and fieldwork. Between 2010-2015 I taught fieldwork and and acted as the finds officer during the excavation of the Iron Age hill fort of Burrough Hill. Since 2019, I am the Deputy Director of the Honor Frost Foundation, British Academy (as a Co-I) and the Levantis Foundation funded Ancient Akrotiri Project, which through fieldwork aims to better understand the maritime history of the Akrotiri peninsula in the Imperial and Byzantine periods. Since 2020, I am the invited editor of two new discoveries sections for the journal Britannia, covering the areas of Hadrian's Wall and Northern England and since 2022 I am the chair of Theoretical Roman Archeology Conference.
