I develop research projects and studentships with collaborative partners in Higher Education and the wider archaeology sector for MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the only archaeology unit that is a UKRI Independent Research Organisation. I was previously Business Development Executive (Heritage) at the University of Leicester, developing collaborative research, consultancy, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and contract research projects between organisations in the heritage sector and academic staff in the Schools of Archaeology & Ancient History, History, Arts, and Museum Studies. These knowledge exchange activities ensure that teaching and research into heritage and the historic environment continues to inform, and be informed by, professional practice. I undertook my PhD at Leicester’s Centre for Historical Archaeology, in the School of Archaeology & Ancient History, where I contributed to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Historical Archaeology. Before coming to Leicester I was Senior Archaeologist in the Built Heritage department at MOLA and previously worked for archaeology units across Britain. I am a full Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA), Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and Hon. Secretary of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology.

Survey lead for Lincolnshire Medieval Graffiti Survey. Member and former Chairman of Lincoln Archaeology Group.
I completed my PhD from the University of Glasgow titled ‘Contextualising the Cropmark Record: The timber monuments of Neolithic Scotland’ in 2009. From 2009-10 I held a short-term lectureship at the University of of Aberdeen and from 2010 have worked for Historic Environment Scotland. I am currently Aerial Survey Projects Manager at Historic Environment Scotland and Affiliate Researcher (Archaeology) at the University of Glasgow. I am co-director of the Lochbrow Landscape Project, an archaeological survey project investigating the sites and landscapes at and around Lochbrow in Dumfries and Galloway. My research interests include the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age of Scotland, timber monumentality and the use of wood to build monuments, aerial archaeology and the interpretation of cropmarks, relationships between humans and the environment in prehistory, landscape archaeology and the integration of experiential and GIS approaches. My publications cover themes of Neolithic Scotland, cropmark archaeology, experiential and landscape archaeology.
I am a specialist in life and interaction at the edges of the Roman Empire, comparative borderland dynamics in world history, archaeological theory (e.g. archaeology of place, process philosophy, postcolonial perspectives), and digital tools/methodologies within archaeology, history, and the wider humanities. I currently direct the Archaeology program at Calvin College and have active archaeological fieldwork projects in Jordan, where I am the Director of Excavations for the Umm al-Jimal Project and Director of the Hisban North Church Project. Previously, I was the academic lead for the Hidden Landscape of a Roman Frontier Project, a collaborative project of Canterbury Christ Church University and Historic Environment Scotland that focused on remote sensing of the Antonine Wall.
