Life, death and the world in between.

I am an archaeologist who specialises in human remains and material culture from mortuary contexts. I curate the dead and do research about death and burial rites across communities and through time. Aside from being a #deathacademic and museum geek, I teach and do laboratory research on human tissues. This website features my professional details and my personal blog. I have an Instagram account dedicated to human remains research and regularly tweet about thanatology, archaeology, and mummy studies.
