PhD candidate, University of Wollongong

I am a PhD candidate in the Centre for Archaeological Science at the University of Wollongong. My research involves the development of techniques to date sand grains extracted from sedimentary deposits, and the application of these techniques to sedimentary deposits at archaeological sites in southern Siberia and Indonesia. The overarching aim of my research is to improve our understandings of the timing and nature of ancient and modern human migrations and interactions.
