I am a PhD Candidate in Archaeology at the University of Sheffield, researching new ways to identify episodes of mass mortality caused by infectious diseases throughout history. At the moment my research is largely focussed on the Black Death in Medieval England, however my interests extend far beyond this specific epidemic in history.
Previous academic research projects include:
- Edward Jordan’s Skull: A Case Study on the Political and Ethical Issues Surrounding the Exhibition of Mortuary Artefacts and Remains (BA)
- The Current State of Forensic Archaeology in a Human Rights Context (MSc)
- Profiling the Dead: A Re-Interpretation of the ‘Executioner’s Trench’
