My expertise is in archaeological survey, GIS and remote sensing.
I am a landscape archaeologist interested primarily in the Middle East, particularly eastern Arabia. My AHRC-funded PhD examined the distribution of Early Bronze Age tombs in Oman and the United Arab Emirates. I located thousands of prehistoric tombs using satellite imagery, and modelled their position in the landscape using GIS in order to better understand the society of the population that built them. My expertise is in archaeological survey, GIS and remote sensing. I have carried out a great deal of archaeological fieldwork in Oman, both for my PhD and as Assistant Director of the Rustaq-Batinah Archaeological Survey. After completing my doctorate, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher for a number of Durham University projects examining Middle Eastern archaeology. I am the Membership Secretary of the International Association for the Study of Arabia, a charitable organisation that seeks to promote research relating to the cultural heritage of the Arabian Peninsula.
