I am an archaeologist with diverse experience in geoarchaeology and landscape historical ecology in sub-Saharan Africa. Following postgraduate studies at Cambridge, I have held teaching and research posts in the UK, Spain, Italy, South Africa, and Denmark. 

My main research interests are in landscape historical ecology and resource practices, with a special focus on water and food management. I have conducted field research in Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Sardinia (Italy).

I am currently involved in field projects exploring: i) the long-term history of water security and ecosystem services at Great Zimbabwe; ii) resource landscapes of urban transition in Zanzibar; iii) Iron Age landscapes in SW Zambia. 

Cambridge researchers with relevant research or interests can become members of the network. If you are not a Cambridge researcher we'd be happy to send you our monthly newsletter.
