LEAP Project

I completed my undergraduate degree in History at Royal Holloway University of London, before perusing a master's degree in Ancient History at Utrecht University. During my master's program, I wrote my thesis on the Bronze Age Collapse and the limits of absolute chronology and presented this work at the OIKOS conference in 2022. My work focused on the use of radiocarbon dating, exploring the intersection of the humanities and sciences, and how they can be used together to gain a deeper understanding of the past.

I also interned at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where I worked on the Constructing the Limes Project using strontium in human cremations to track provenance and shed light on the movement of people along the Dutch-Roman border.

I am a firm believer in the importance of outreach projects and participated in the Things that Talk project at Leiden University, which aimed to make historical artefacts more accessible to the general public.
