I completed my PhD in 2015 (Spectroscopic and diffraction analysis of whole soil and volcanic tephras) and joined the Analytical Centre in 2016 as a Project Analyst; a role dedicated to the management and delivery of commercial projects. I also feed heavily into the equipment management (expertise, maintenance and training) in the area of vibrational spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction.

In 2020 I became Lecturer in Forensic Science in the school of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences, alongside my role in the Analytical Centre.

My research focusses on the application of Raman spectroscopy, particually in the forensic sciences and cultural heritidge.
