As Fitch 2024 Research and Outreach Officer I work with Noémi Müller in the chemical analysis unit and I am also responsible for Outreach and Development at the Fitch Laboratory.
My research interests are in investigating in-organic materials, with a current focus on ceramics. I have worked on material from across Europe and from multiple time periods. My current research aims to investigate ancient pottery production in the northern Peloponnese, addressing questions of raw material exploitation, organisation of production, and cross-craft interaction. My research uses a range of analytical techniques and the results of which are integrated with archaeological and experimental data to explore questions about the technology and provenance of ceramics.
I received my MSc in ‘The technology and analysis of archaeological materials’ and my PhD on ‘Metalworking crucibles in Roman Britain’ from the Institute of Archaeology, UCL. I have experience of working with a range of archaeological materials including ceramics, metals, glass, and waste materials associated to these respective industries. My experience of working with different materials has led to an interest in exploring cross-craft interactions in the ancient world.
