Biography

My research interests focus on approaches to socialisation and experience in the deep past. I am especially interested in the development of theoretical frameworks suited to interpreting how ancient individuals interacted with and thought about their world, particularly its cultic aspects. I carry out fieldwork in Israel (Tell Azekah) and Iraq (Khani Masi) and my research explores the Bronze and Iron Ages in these regions as well as Syria and Anatolia.
