Professor, Griffith University

I hold a PhD from the ANU, specialising in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction through the analysis of phytoliths. I hold a BSc(Hons) from UWA where my thesis was a residue study of stone artefacts from a 30,000yo site in the Kimberley region. I recently finished working on a major ARC-funded project looking at the archaeology of the Native Mounted Police in QLD. For the period 2021-2025 I am working with a large team recording rock art and other heritage places with Aboriginal communities in Cape York Peninsula, and also with a different, smaller team exploring Yulluna experience of the colonial frontier in western Qld.
