I am an archaeologist and social anthropologist working on a range of topics in eastern Africa with particular focus on landscapes in Kenya, Uganda and South Sudan. I hold the position of Lecturer in African Studies at University College London. From 2014-2015 I was a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge and before that I was Fellow in East African Archaeology at the University of Cambridge and the British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA) in Nairobi Kenya. From 2008 to 2010 I was Assistant Director of the British Institute in Eastern Africa. I have been a Bye-Fellow of Pembroke College Cambridge and sit on the Governing Council and Research Committee of the British Institute in Eastern Africa.
