As Assistant Director, I co-ordinate the BSA courses and teaching for both undergraduate and graduate students, and I manage the security and maintenance of the hostel. I also serve as Curator of the BSA museum. Alongside these duties, my research focuses on Archaic and Classical period city-states, using GIS and quantitative analysis to consider how these states networked with one another. In the field, I have worked most recently on Kythera, and at Olynthos and Pylos.
I completed my PhD in Classical Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, having also spent time at the Ruhr-Universität, Bochum. I have taught undergraduates from Birkbeck, Cambridge, and Dartmouth College, and I have experience delivering museum teaching both to schools and to the general public.
