Dr Kathryn Piquette
I am a Sessional Lecturer and Senior Research Consultant in Specialist
Imaging with the UCL
Centre for Digital Humanities’ Advanced
Imaging Consultants (UCLAiC). Before coming to UCL I held positions at the Cologne Center for eHumanities (CCeH) and
the Institut für Altertumskunde, Universität zu Köln. Prior to
this I held a Marie-Curie COFUND Fellowship at Freie Universität Berlin, and
other post-doctoral positions at the University of Oxford, UCL, and Trinity
College Dublin. I am also a Sessional Lecture at the University of Reading Department of Archaeology and an Honorary Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Archaeology.
In addition to my training as an Egyptologist (PhD 2007, MA
2002, both UCL Institute of
Archaeology), I specialise in computational imaging techniques including
Reflectance Transformation Imaging and Multispectral Imaging. I provide
consulting services through UCL Advanced
Imaging Consultants (UCLAiC) on a freelance basis, including familiarisation
and training courses.
My academic research focusses on Egyptian and Near Eastern
writing and art, and the development and application of advanced imaging
techniques for the elucidation of ‘visual’ culture from wider ancient world and
beyond. Recent projects include Deep Imaging Mummy Cases, Non-Destructive
Analysis of Multi-Layered Papyrus, an Excellence Cluster TOPOI project
for which I am documenting Coptic and Arabic pilgrim graffiti and wall
paintings in Aswan, Egypt, as well as the Magica
Levantina and Herculaneum Papyri projects with the
Universität zu Köln.
My publications include the forthcoming eBook “An Archaeology of Art and Writing: Early
Egyptian labels in context” with supporting database (2017, Modern Academic Publishing) the
co-edited Open Access volume “Writing
as Material Practice: Substance, surface and medium” (2013, Ubiquity Press).
Further publications are available to download via Academia.edu.
