Research interests

My current position as HES Postdoctoral Fellow in Materials Science is generously funded by a grant from Historic Environment Scotland.

As a material culture specialist, my primary research interests focus on developing innovative methodologies and technologies to analyse and interpret artefacts set within the framework of appropriate theoretical models and cutting edge scientific techniques. My PhD thesis exploited museum collections to explore the social meanings of Roman material culture from Roman Scotland. Since then I have expanded the chronological, material and geographical focus of my research using p-XRF and Raman Spectrometry to analyse elemental composition of a range of material culture classes. In collaboration with colleagues from Physics I am developing analytical equipment and software to bring innovation to the field of Materials Science. I am currently leading several research projects in collaboration with colleagues from across traditional disciplinary divides, including the College of Arts, the College of Science and Engineering and the Hunterian Museum. These include:

  • Analysing elemental composition of material culture
  • Recreating colour on the Hunterian Museum’s renowned Antonine Wall Distance Slabs 
  • PPIP (Paints and Pigments in the Past) Research Group, comprising a multi-disciplinary collective of specialists from the University of Glasgow
  • Developing specialist equipment and bespoke software for non-destructive analysis and x-ray imagery of archaeological materials and works of art
  • Exploiting and promoting research collections in Scottish museums
  • Contributing to innovation in displaying temporary and permanent museum exhibits
