My primary research focus is the application of remote sensing techniques in an archaeological context. I am an experienced archaeological surveyor with expertise in topographical survey, geophysical prospection, GIS, and 3D scanning technology. I have directed a number of recent archaeological surveys on both prehistoric and historic landscapes in the UK and abroad including, Stonehenge, Rapa Nui (Easter Island) and Tanzania.

Recent research projects have included the Rapa Nui: Landscapes of Construction Project (with Sue Hamilton, UCL and Colin Richards, Manchester University), and the Songo Mnara: Urban Space, Social memory and Materiality (with Stephanie Wynne-Jones, University of York and Jeff Fleisher, Rice University). I am a co-director of the AHRC funded Stonehenge Riverside Project (with the Universities of Sheffield, Manchester, Bristol and UCL).

I also specialise in materials and production technology with particular reference to glass production in Northern Europe from the late 1st to early 2nd millennium AD. Recent projects include the archaeological investigation of glass making at Glastonbury Abbey, (with Hugh Willmott, University of Sheffield).
