I graduated with a PhD in Archaeology and Palaeoecology from Queen’s University Belfast. I have a keen interest in past vegetation and climate dynamics, and in landscape evolution. I am interested in upland cultural land-use, tracing the origins of present-day landscapes and defining sustainable economic practices by analysing long-term vegetation evolution. I particularly enjoy the interdisciplinary and multi-proxy approaches that my research awards me. I have participated in multiple palaeoenvironmental and archaeological research projects in Portugal, Scotland and Ireland.
