Zooarchaeology, Environmental Archaeology,

& Collections Based Research

I’m a University of York-based Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher working within the SeaChanges International Training Network.

Past training includes an MA in Historical Archaeology from the University of Massachusetts-Boston, where I produced a zooarchaeological thesis focused on 19th-century foodways and dietary reform movements. Additionally, I have experience in collections management, social media outreach and science communication, diversity and inclusion initiative development, and field archaeology.

Cross-disciplinary interests include:

  • Environmental archaeology

  • Fisheries and fish ecology

  • Faunal analysis

  • North American Historical Archaeology

  • Queer and Feminist archaeology

  • Accessibility in science

  • Dogs, coffee, and science fiction movies
