I completed my undergraduate in Anthropology at Durham University and went on to complete a Masters in Palaeoanthropology and Palaeolithic Archaeology at UCL. After a period of working as a Commissioning Editor for Taylor & Francis, I joined the Natural History Museum in 2016 as part of a project financed by the Calleva Foundation. I work alongside Chris Stringer and Silvia Bello, supporting their research on human origins and cutmark micro-morphometrics within the Earth Sciences department.
