PhD Candidate, Geoarchaeology, Southern Cross University

I am in the final month of my PhD candidature with the Geoarchaeology and Archaeometry Research Group, based at Southern Cross University. Currently I am employing trace element and stable isotope analysis to reconstruct the early life behaviour of the extinct hominid Gigantopithecus blacki. Prior to beginning my PhD, I completed a masters degree in heritage management and geoarchaeology focusing on the mobility and diet of Neanderthal and Homo Erectus prey species at sites in Israel and France.

I have worked in consulting archaeology and have undertaken fieldwork extensively, both nationally and internationally, and have presented my research at conferences run by bodies such as EAA, UISPP, WAC, AEIC, IPPA, and AAA. I am currently the vice chair of the World Archaeology Congress (student committee) and representative for Australia and Oceania.
