Academic interests

I am a new PhD candidate at CEES and will be a part of the 4OCEANS ERC funded project. This project aims to assess the importance of marine life to human societies over the last two millennia, and create a world atlas of historical marine exploitation. I will be focusing on human impacts on sirenians - which include manatees, dugongs, and the extinct Steller's sea cow - using DNA from archaeological and modern samples.

I am originally from the UK and my background is in archaeology, egyptology and human evolutionary studies. I did my Bachelor's degree at the University of Liverpool and my MPhil at the University of Cambridge.
