I am an Adjunct Researcher at Southern Cross University, and a consulting Archaeologist at a cultural heritage firm, Niche Environment and Heritage.
My main areas of research expertise are icthyoarchaeological analyses, how native fish populations have been affected since the arrival of Europeans in Australia, and how fish remains from archaeological sites can contribute to our understanding of human behaviour and palaeoenvironmental conditions. I also have interdisciplinary research skills encompassing fish biology and fisheries management, chemistry and geochemistry, data management, and historical research.
Throughout my consulting career, I have gained experience in archaeological surveying, Aboriginal site recording, excavation, site mapping, artefact analysis, report writing, laboratory work, liaising with clients, Aboriginal communities, and various other stakeholders, preparing scopes of works and budgets for potential projects, project management, supervising field staff, and editing reports.
