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 archaeological sites in Siberia and Indonesia. The overarching aim of my research is to enhance understandings of how prehistoric humans responded to social and environmental changes.
