Biography

I manage the running of the light stable isotope facility for the SUERC Radiocarbon Laboratory in support of both collaborative research and commercial work.

In collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific, I developed methodologies to simultaneously analyse δ15N, δ13C, and δ34S isotopes on small archaeological bone collagen/dentine samples (~1–1.5mg).

Those interested in using the facility should contact myself in the first instance and prior to submitting grant applications.

Research interests

RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am an isotope chemist specialising in the analysis archaeological bone collagen and tooth dentine.

  • My main research interests include using nitrogen (δ15N), carbon (δ13C), and sulfur (δ34S) stable isotope analysis to investigate diet, mobility, and social status within pre-historic societies.
  • I also exploit the use of sulfur isotope analysis (δ34S) in conjunction with radiocarbon (14C) dating to better understand marine and freshwater reservoir effects.
  • I collaborate with archaeologists to produce more robust and precise Bayesian chronologies for archaeological sites.

 

Collaborative research projects are strongly encouraged. PhD project proposals and visitors interested in training at the facility are warmly welcomed.

Additional information

I joined the SUERC Radiocarbon Laboratory as a member of the technical team in August 2009 after spending a number of years in industry working for Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisations (CDMOs) as a Research & Development Chemist. In 2011 I was promoted to Research Associate and began developing methodologies for analysing sulfur isotope values in archaeological bone samples.
