I am an early career researcher with a passion for landscapes. I am enthusiastic about mapping and heritage, and I value opportunities which allow me to share my love of the past with others. My primary research interests are landscape archaeology and sociocultural identity, with an emphasis on later prehistory.
In February 2017 I joined SHESC's Center for Archaeology and Society as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. My current research project, Prehistoric social landscapes of the Phoenix Basin, aims to use geographic information systems (GIS) to understand the rock art at the ASU Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve within its wider landscape context. In addition to my role here at ASU, I am an Honorary Visiting Researcher at the University of Bradford in the UK (2016-2019).
From 2006 to 2010 I received a liberal arts education as an undergraduate at the University of Arizona, where I completed my BA in History and Anthropology. My MA studies (2010-2011) brought me to the University of Bradford in the UK, where I gained a new perspective on archaeological theory and practice, and where I began to concentrate on the landscapes of later prehistoric Britain and Ireland. In 2012 I became a doctoral student at the University of Bradford, working within the School of Archaeological Sciences' Iron Age Research Group (led by Prof Ian Armit). In December 2015 I submitted my PhD thesis, Lines across the land: a biography of the linear earthwork landscapes of the later prehistoric Yorkshire Wolds (supervised by Prof Ian Armit, Dr Chris Gaffney and Dr Karina Croucher), and I was awarded my PhD in the summer of 2016.
