Research Summary

My research interests sit somewhere at the intersection between Roman archaeology, archaeological science, and numismatics.

My current research project uses XRF, LA-ICP-MS and negative muon XES to investigate the major and trace element composition of the gold coinages of Rome and its African and Asian neighbours. The broad aim is to build a better picture of the gold supply networks that existed in these various regions and how they interacted with each other.


I was educated at a comprehensive in Redbridge in East London. I graduated from Oxford with a first in CAAH and a distinction in the Classical Archaeology MSt. I won the Thomas Whitcombe Greene and the Gibbs examination prizes, and the Barclay Head Prize in Ancient Numismatics. From 2016 I held an AHRC CDP Studentship at the Ashmolean and the University of Warwick, during which I won the Royal Numismatic Society’s Parkes-Weber Prize.

In 2020 I was awarded the Lavery-Shuffrey Fellowship in Roman Art and Archaeology at Lincoln College, alongside a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship at the Ashmolean Museum.
