My background was initially in archaeology having studied at Bradford University where I was awarded a BSc Archaeology and a Diploma in Professional Archaeological Studies. I went back to Bradford University to undertake a MSc in Forensic Archaeology and Crime Scene Investigation where my thesis focussed on the application of novel laser scanning to the forensic decomposition process.
I undertook my PhD at Teesside University in Forensic Anthropology, while lecturing part-time in forensic science. In 2017 I was employed as a full time lecturer in forensic science before moving to Cranfields Forensic Institute in 2018.
I have also undertaken my post-graduate certificate in learning and teaching in higher education (PgCLTHE).
I am currently interested in the application of three-dimensional imaging to the forensic archaeological and anthropological process. This includes the documentation of evidence / artifacts at scenes and the use of multi-dimensional imaging within the courts. Much of my prior interest in this area has been on trauma. Further, my interest is also in forensic taphonomy - in particular, animal scavenging.
