Personal profile

Biography

I am an archaeologist with over 15 years of field and research experience in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Greece and Australia. As part of my postgraduate studies at The University of Sydney, I analysed the Tell Nebi Mend, Syria, mid-to-late third millennium BC occupational sequence, which included comprehensive ceramic analysis and full stratigraphic phasing of the site. My post-doctoral work has focused upon the final publication of the later phases of occupation at Tell Um Hammad, Jordan, specifically the Early Bronze Age IV and Iron Age levels, as well as the publication of the third and early second millennia BC sequence at Tell Nebi Mend. At present, I am a Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia on the project Aerial Archaeology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - Al-Ula. I am also the Assistant director and Field director of the ground survey and excavation components of this project.
