Hello! I am a lecturer in diagnostic radiography at Canterbury Christ Church University (United Kingdom). This is my research website where I share my interests in paleoimaging - the use of imaging methods in archaeology.

I have a Bachelor of Science in both archaeology and diagnostic radiography, culminating in a Masters in Forensic Radiography. I am also registered as an archaeologist with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists. 


My main areas of experience includes nuclear medicine, x-ray, CT and fluoroscopy. I am British but I've adopted the American way of spelling paleoimaging, the alternative being palaeoimaging. I contribute to a range of academic journals and I'm on the international advisory board for Radiography.

I'll be posting updates on my blog every now and then to tell you all what I've been up to. Check out the Projects section of the website to view publications, photos, x-rays and videos related to paleoimaging. Listen to the podcast from Archeotech to learn more about me and the use of x-rays in archaeology.
