Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



Having completed an undergraduate degree in Classics (2015, Cambridge), I moved to Classical Archaeology for my MPhil (2016, Cambridge). My PhD uses computational techniques to investigate how the first city-states of Archaic Greece interacted with one another, and how they formed political and economic networks with their neighbours. I am particularly interested in exchanges which took place between the mainlands of modern day Greece and Turkey, and also across the Cycladic islands.
