Areas of Expertise

I am an anthropological archaeologist, specializing in an eclectic mix of digital technology, transatlantic history and public heritage. My research explores the material manifestations of heritage, reconstructing social memory and material history, particularly in the transatlantic worlds of the UK, Barbados, and Canada.

Follow my projects (past and present) in digital archaeology, education (HigherEd & public), and creative practice.
