Research Focus firstname.lastname@example.org
I study natural resource economics of the ancient world. Related areas of research include ancient history, landscape and environmental archaeology, climate and topography, and ancient science and technology. My current major project is entitled 'Forest exploitation and sustainability in province and empire.' It will compare the fuel consumption of Rome and central Italy with that of Londinium and southern Romano-Britain in the Imperial period. I graduated in science, business and arts, before completing my doctorate in archaeology at Sydney on the fuel economy of Pompeii. I held the Ralegh Radford Rome fellowship at the British School at Rome (Oct 2011-June 2012) and I am currently the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research Anniversary Fellow (Dec 2012-2015), at the University of Cambridge, and a Research Fellow and Tutor at Hughes Hall, Cambridge.
I am also an honorary research affiliate at the Department of Archaeology, University of Sydney and I work with a number of international excavation teams, mostly in Italy (but also in SE Asia and the UK) as an environmental archaeologist and economic historian.
