Having received my MA in Material Culture and Experimental Archaeology from the University of York, I am now a PhD candidate at the University of Tübingen, in the Institute of Archaeological Sciences.

My focus is in food and drink (specializing in cider/apple wine and beer), with a special interest in use-wear morphology, multi-lifeway object biography, and tracing invisible majority material culture. I am currently tackling the identification of processes on archaeobotanical materials, and establishing archaeological signatures associated with various processes performed on apples and grains, and the impact of charring on the morphologies.
