As the William’s Fellow in Ceramic Petrology, I am working on a number of research projects; from the exploration of clay resources in the northern Peloponnese, to the study of textile tools, and the influence of tempering materials on the chemical composition and material properties of ceramics. 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.
