I did my PhD at the University of Bradford researching fuel use in the past. My work developed a method of identification for archaeological fuel using comparative analyses to modern analogues. My research is focused on the Orkney Islands, Scotland. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Anthropology at William Paterson University, New Jersey, and a Master's in Archaeological Sciences at The University of Bradford, UK. I have participated in excavations in the UK and the USA with a particular interest in multi-period occupation sites.
