I am now an assistant professor in the Department of History at Carleton University, where I teach classes on digital history and its methodologies, and ancient history. I joined the department in July 2010.
I graduated from the School of Human and Environmental Sciences at the University of Reading with a PhD in Archaeology in 2002. In the intervening years I have worked professionally as a heritage consultant, a teacher, and as an entrepreneur. When I lived in the UK, I was a Member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists. In 2005/6 I was a post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Classics at the University of Manitoba with Lea Stirling. I am a Registered Professional Archaeologist, a member of the Society for American Archaeology, a member of the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities, and thanks to winning the 2013 Desire2Learn Innovation Award, a member of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.
My research interests are in digital media for research and teaching in archaeology & history; digital archaeology, public archaeology, and landscape archaeology; video games as a way of writing history; modelling social complexity, social networks analysis and the Roman economy; and accessibility issues & the digital humanities, cf http://accessibility2012.thatcamp.org.
