I am the Head of Central Casework and Programmes at English Heritage, based
out of their central London
offices and working as part of the Designation Department. My role includes
leading the Central Casework, Programmes and Marine Designation Teams. These
teams lead the delivery of the national designation casework process (listing
historic buildings, scheduling archaeological sites, registering parks, gardens
and battlefields and protecting wrecks), provide central support and liaison
with DCMS, and promote the increase in designation activity through the
provision of guidance, training, outreach and policy development.
I am a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and a Member of the Institute for Archaeologists. I am also an elected trustee of the Council for British Archaeology (CBA).
Between 2006-12 I was the County Archaeologist of Surrey and a Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. Prior to these positions I held lectureships at the University of Flinders (Adelaide) in 2005-06 and at Cardiff University in 2004-05. I have also worked as a visiting lecturer at the University of Bristol and as an archaeological tutor at the University of Southampton, as well as a freelance heritage consultant.
I have a BA in Archaeology and History (1997), an MA in Maritime Archaeology (1999) and a PhD in Archaeology (2003), all from the University of Southampton.
