Biography

My archaeological career began at the University of Birmingham, where I obtained my bachelors degree in archaeology in 2008. I remained at Birmingham to study for an MPhil in archaeological practice, which I completed in 2010. In November 2010 I enrolled at the University of Aberdeen to study for a PhD in Archaeology. My thesis considered the evidence for conflict in Viking Age England, focusing specifically on the area colonised and occupied by the Scandinavians during the 9th and 10th centuries (an area referred to by some scholars as the ‘Danelaw’). I successfully completed my viva in October 2013 and since February 2014 I have been working as a postdoctoral research fellow for Simon Fraser University. I recently moved to British Columbia to continue my research in the Human Evolutionary Studies Program at SFU. I additionally hold an honorary research fellowship in the department of archaeology at the University of Aberdeen.
