Biography

I am an archaeologist whose work focuses on the evolution of human culture and society in Polynesia. I am particularly interested in settlement dynamics during the colonisation of New Zealand and the relationship between population, food production and social change. I have a BA (Hons) in Anthropology an MA in Archaeology from the University of Otago, New Zealand and PhD in from the UCL Institute of Archaeology.

Research

I have recently been awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship hosted by the Department of Archaeology, Anthropology and Forensic Science, Bournemouth University. The aim of the project is to investigate the settlement dynamics during the initial period of colonisation in New Zealand and the process of human niche construction that followed.
