Biography

I am actively involved in the ‘Libyan Antiquities at Risk’ project

My research focus is on funerary practices, funerary iconography and mortuary landscapes of North Africa, in particularly Libya.  I am currently putting the final touches to my PhD thesis on the Roman-period mausolea of Tripolitania, at the University of Leicester. I am actively involved in the ‘Libyan Antiquities at Risk’ project which has at its aim to protect Libyan cultural heritage that is under threat of being removed and sold on the illegal Antiquities market.

I undertook fieldwork on the Desert Migration Project in Fezzan, and on the Ghadames Archaeological project, Libya. Currently I am a member of a field project in the Draa valley in Morocco.
