I studied Archaeology at the University of Nottingham, and gained a first class BA (Hons) in 2010. I completed my MA in Medieval Archaeology (with distinction) at the University of Nottingham in 2011. In 2015 I finished my AHRC funded PhD in North Atlantic archaeology at Cardiff University. Whilst completing my PhD I was made a Visiting Researcher at the University of Iceland and a Visiting Scholar at the National Museum of the Faroe Islands.
Prior to joining the department at Sheffield I worked for two years at the Settlement Exhibition, part of the Reykjavík City Museum. I have taught Anglo-Saxon archaeology at Cardiff University, and have excavation experience in Iceland, UK, and Portugal.
