I am focused on inter- and multi-disciplinary research methods and their impact on academic practice. These are loosely structured around University-wide interests in interdisciplinary digital practice (within the DE USRG), at a more local level in the digital humanities (within sotonDH) and cultural heritage computing, and within the department of archaeology on archaeological computing (with ACRG). These three areas interact and I enjoy working across disciplines and indeed institutions.
You can learn more about my research at my Digital Economy page.
The Portus Project is guided by two main objectives. Firstly, it seeks to build a better understanding of Portus itself, as well as its relationship to Ostia, Rome, and the rest of the Mediterranean. Secondly, it aims to develop techniques that will enhance the ways in which highly complex classical sites can be investigated and recorded, and evaluate the impact of those techniques.
Promoting digital solutions to rock and cave art research
This 18 month project (2014-2015), funded by a BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grant, aims to advance rock art research through the application of state-of-the-art imaging technologies.
PARNASSUS is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the University of Southampton, UCL and the University of Bristol that is investigating the adverse environmental effects and adaptation measures needed for the protection of cultural heritage from climate change impact.
The PATINA project explores Personal Architectonics Through Interactions with Artifacts. It is a 3 year project funded through the EPSRC and the AHRC through the RCUK Digital Economy Initiative. This project involves partnership from Microsoft Research, Nokia Research and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
