I am a Lecturer in Palaeolithic Archaeology at the University of Liverpool.
I hold a BA in Archaeology from Durham University, and an MPhil and PhD (2013) from the University of Cambridge. From 2013-2016, I was a Research Fellow in Archaeology and Anthropology at Peterhouse, University of Cambridge, where I was also Director of Studies for Human, Social, and Political Sciences. From 2016-2020 I was based at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, first as a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow (ECF-2016-128), and then as the recipient of a Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Wenner-Gren Foundation.
Within the broad area of Palaeolithic archaeology, my research focuses on archaeological demography, hunter-gatherer studies, and the methodological and theoretical challenges of the archaeology of archaic hominins. These three strands are combined in my soon-to-be completed monograph “Palaeolithic Europe: A Demographic and Social Prehistory” (under contract with Cambridge University Press for publication in their World Archaeology Series). Details of this book, and the project from which it derives, can be found under the Current Research tab.
