I am an early career researcher with a passion for landscapes. I am enthusiastic about mapping and heritage, and my research primarily focuses on non-destructive, digital methods of landscape archaeology.
As an undergraduate I received a liberal arts education at the University of Arizona. This gave me an interdisciplinary background and an appreciation for the diverse approaches that people use to understand the past. I subsequently began to concentrate on European prehistory, earning my MA and PhD from the University of Bradford. My doctoral thesis concerned the linear earthworks of the Yorkshire Wolds, and took a biographical approach to landscape. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate with Arizona State University’s Center for Archaeology and Society, where I have been working on a self-designed project on the rock art landscape at Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve. I am also an Honorary Visiting Researcher at the University of Bradford.

My current project, Prehistoric social landscapes of the Phoenix Basin, re-evaluates the rock art landscape at Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve. The project uses non-destructive methods, such as reflectance transformation imaging (RTI) and geographic information systems (GIS), to record and understand the site in new ways.
