In my current role with Heritage Futures, 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. I am currently working on turning my PhD into a monograph, which will be published with Routledge by the end of 2018. My general research interests include conflict heritage, archaeologies of the contemporary world, time and human-thing relationships.
