In my role as a Heritage Futures Affiliated Researcher, I look at conservation practices in the context of animal biobanks. Prior to this, I was a postdoc on the AHRC GCRF funded Restricted Access Pilot Project on nuclear heritage in South America. I have a background in conflict archaeology and anthropology, with a special focus on the heritage of armed violence within a 20th century South American context. My PhD focused on the conflict landscapes and material culture of the Chaco War and the different ethnic minorities that were affected by the war. My PhD will be published as a with Routledge by the end of 2019.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Archaeology, History, Religious Studies and Theology at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. My general research interests include conflict heritage, archaeologies of the contemporary world, time and human-thing relationships.
