As Scientific Research Officer I am responsible for the chemical analysis unit at the Fitch Laboratory. This includes the development of analytical protocols for the WD-XRF, ensuring the implementation of elemental analyses in the laboratory’s projects and collaboration in the integration of the analytical data with the results of petrographic, archaeological, ethnographic, and experimental data in order to reconstruct patterns of early ceramic production and circulation.
I am interested in applying analytical methods to investigate inorganic archaeological artefacts and materials, focusing on the study of provenance and technology and with a special interest in archaeological ceramics. My research also examines the affordance of utilitarian ceramics, in particular cooking ware, using material testing to explore the influence of technological choices in manufacture on mechanical and thermal properties.
I received an MSc in Chemistry from the ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich), Switzerland and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Sheffield, UK. I previously held postdoctoral positions in Nicosia, Barcelona, and Athens.
