I’m a London based classical archaeologist and ancient historian. I’ve worked at the British Museum, Oxford University and King’s College London in various precarious capacities. I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Open University, where I work mainly on art and material culture in religious environments, and specifically on constructions of gods in the ancient Mediterranean world. I also work on monumentalism, the use of violence in art, and constructions of gender in material assemblages.
I spend quite a lot of time looking at images and objects, going to museums and galleries, and walking about looking at buildings. I’ve been fortunate enough to be a co-curator of two exhibitions, one quite small and another rather large, which you can read more about here.
I’m a Midlands based graduate of Christ Church, Oxford, in the early stages of my curatorial career. I have a particular interest in the ways in which art is displayed, urban fabrics, and artistic creation more broadly. I have also kept a personal blog here about aspects of presentation and display.
I have active interests in wine, travel (writing), and poetry.
