My research is particularly concerned with the role of the material mediating social relationships. Currently, I am working on the project 'Making a Mark: Imagery and process in the British and Irish Neolithic', led by Dr. Andrew Meirion Jones. This two-year research project (2014-2016), funded by the Leverhulme Trust, is the first holistic analysis of decorated artefacts from the British and Irish Neolithic. Continue reading →

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Konstanz. I received my PhD in Archaeology from the University of Southampton (2014) for my work entitled ‘Evaluating network science in archaeology. A Roman archaeology perspective’; I also gained my MSc from Southampton, in ‘Archaeological Computing: Spatial Technologies’, where I was a member of the Archaeological Computing Research Group.

My research includes a number of three dimensional recording techniques, namely triangulation laser scanner, time of flight and phase laser scanning, LiDAR, photogrammetry, structured light and computed tomography scanning. I am also heavily involved in the photographic capturing within the Archaeological Computing Research Group with expertise in general and multispectral  photography, gigapixel imaging and Reflectance Transformation Imaging.

My current research interest lies in the relationships between archaeology in the field and the digital embodiments of archaeological knowledge. In particular, I wish to investigate how and where these digital embodiments are created, manipulated, transformed, presented, and interpreted, and to explore the philosophical and social impacts of information technology on archaeology and related disciplines.

My PhD research examines the application of computer graphics for conservation of artefacts, including documentation, examination, analysis and presentation, as well as restoration. My case study is the Derveni collection, currently located in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, Greece. Continue reading →

I investigate prehistoric landscapes, non-Anglo-American landscape theories, and I am currently working on digital heritage. I am a Durham University graduate, with an interest in geophysical and buildings surveying. My undergraduate dissertation employed geophysics at Stanwick Oppidum, and assessed it's relation to it's landscape, showing how the site (on current evidence) was actually not as significant as we percieve it to be.

My research focuses on the application of web technologies on giving students a fundamental experience of an archaeological site and the processes that occur during a project. My main interests lie in the use of WebGL and other 3D web rendering libraries in the visualization of archaeological data. Continue reading →

My main interest lies in imaging technologies for cultural heritage. An topic close to my heart, is usability and accessibility in academic outputs.  Current projects include the prospection of the imaging related data management at the university and developing the digital communication infrastructure for university strategic research groups (which the current website is based on). In addition to that, I have been working on web applications to present archaeological data. Continue reading →
