I am a Senior Lecturer in Egyptology at the University of Manchester. Originally from Denmark, I was awarded an AHRC Block Grant to undertake PhD research at the University of Liverpool investigating subsistence strategies and craft production at the Ramesside fortress site of Zawiyet Umm el-Rakham. I obtained my PhD in 2016.
I have excavated in Europe, Turkey and Egypt, and I am currently the field director of the University of Liverpool Tell Nabasha Survey Project, which conducts archaeological investigations of the ancient city of Imet located in the north-eastern Nile Delta. I have published several peer-reviewed papers, as well as more public-oriented articles and I am the author of 'Pharaoh Seti I' (2018), 'From Mummies to Microchips' (2020, co-authored w/ Professor Joyce Tyldesley) and 'Egyptomaniacs: How We Became Obsessed with Ancient Egypt' (2020).
