Curator for Ancient Near East, Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford

My research interests range over several areas in ancient Near Eastern studies, but I work particularly on the role of visual representation, focussing on Mesopotamia in the third millennium BC and the Neo-Assyrian period.

I studied at University College London as an undergraduate and a postgraduate student, and postgraduate teacher training at the Institute of Education, University of London. I have worked as a curator in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the British Museum. I am also a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London.
