About Me

I am an Egyptologist and scientist at the British Museum, currently analysing organic funerary coatings on Egyptian coffins and cartonnage. I obtained my PhD from UCL in conjunction with the British Museum in 2018. My research was on ancient paint from the ancient town of Amara West, now in northern Sudan.
