I am an anthropological archaeologist interested in the development of increasingly complex societies in Northern Europe during the Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age. My current research focuses on the archaeological evidence of social hierarchies and inequalities using bioarchaeological investigation, mortuary analysis, and examination of trade networks within Northern Europe.
