I am particularly interested in learning more about Egyptian art and archaeology, as well as material from across the Arabic-speaking and Islamic world.

Part-time volunteer with EAMENA supervised by Dr. Jennie Bradbury, assisting postdoctoral researchers in the Oxford team. I analyse and assess satellite imagery from Google Earth and the Corona Archives before inputting into the EAMENA database, as well as enhancing existing database information. In addition to this, I spend time in the library reviewing published academic literature, and have designed published material for the Protecting the Past conference, held in Tunis, Tunisia (December 2017).

I recently graduated from Oxford with my BA in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, with Finals papers ranging from Egyptian Art and Architecture, through Early Iron Age Greece and the Mediterranean, Alexander the Great, to the High Roman Empire. Thematic papers included Sexuality and Gender in the Greek and Roman, and Religion from Augustus to Constantine. I am particularly interested in learning more about Egyptian art and archaeology, as well as material from across the Arabic-speaking and Islamic world.

I am looking to build experience in archaeological heritage understanding, conservation, and protection, and am currently preparing for postgraduate study before pursuing a career in cultural heritage policy and protection.

My volunteering at EAMENA is juggled alongside part-time employment at Oxford Policy Management, an international development consultancy, and volunteer research assistance at the Ashmolean Museum under Dr. Volker Heuchert. My spare time is spent attending university seminars on international relations, transitional justice, history and politics, as well as conferences relevant to my interest, such as the Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory (CHAT) conference on Heritage, Art and Memory (Amsterdam, November 2017).
