My research interests include archaeological sciences particularly archaeobotany and phytolith research, palaeoecology, prehistory with a focus on the transition from Mesolithic to Neolithic societies, South Asian Archaeology, British Archaeology, FAIR data, data sharing, scientific communication, academic contributions and authorship.
I am passionate about applying open science approaches for greater research sustainability. I have a particular interest in developing reproducible research workflows and enabling a more equitable, diverse and inclusive research culture.
I have been returning to research over the last few years, after a break from academia working as a Science Educator. I am currently a Research Associate and Community Manager on the DECOVID project at The Alan Turing Institute as well as undertaking my own archaeological-related projects.
Since my return to academia, I have embraced an open science approach in all of my work. This has involved conducting a project to assess open science practices in phytolith research and developing the issues that have arisen from this research as part of my Open Life Science project to raise awareness of open science in my field. I have given talks, written blogs, and formed a working group for open science in phytolith research. We have initiated a FAIRification project to assess existing phytolith data and create guidelines for new data.
I am an active member of The Turing Way Community and have recently run workshops on Zero to Binder and Project design. I am also working on several chapters for The Turing Way book as part of the Guide for Communication.
