Postdoctoral Fellow, School of Archaeology & Anthropology, Australian National University

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the ANU's School of Archaeology and Anthropology, working on Professor Matthew Spriggs’ Laureate Fellowship project 'The Collective Biography of Archaeology in the Pacific: A Hidden History' (CBAP). My current research, which addresses the German-speaking tradition within Pacific archaeology and ethnology, builds on my PhD dissertation, completed in the ANU’s School of Culture, History and Language in 2011.

I hold a Master of Arts in History and Philosophy of Science, a Bachelor of Arts (Degree with Honours), a Bachelor of Science, and a Diploma in Modern Languages (German), all from the University of Melbourne. Prior to commencing my current position in early 2015, I was employed at the Australian Embassy in Berlin, Germany, where my responsibilities included bilateral research collaboration and the repatriation of Australian Indigenous ancestral remains from German collecting institutions.
