PhD candidate, Archaeology, UCL

My research is centred on the archaeology of Pleistocene humans, and in particular, subsistence behaviours and technologies. My expertise is in hunting technologies focusing specifically on the use of wood. I have conducted experimental work on the ballistics of early weapons in collaboration with Cranfield Defence and Security (Defence Academy of the UK) and Loughborough University. I am a member of the European Society for the Study of Human Evolution and The International Union of Prehistoric and Protohistoric Sciences.
