Prior to coming to Lund University in 2017 I was a Research Specialist in the Deep Submergence Laboratory at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the USA, and a Lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My PhD from MIT is in the History and Archaeology of Technology, complementing a Masters degree in Maritime Archaeology from University of Southampton and another in Social and Economic History from Tufts University. I specialize in the application of advanced methods and technology to archaeology, particularly submerged sites. I have directed several underwater archaeological projects: surveys of ancient shipwrecks by Autonomous Underwater Vehicle in the Aegean; six years of excavation by technical diving on the Antikythera Shipwreck in Greece; and underwater recoveries of human remains from World War II aircraft for the U.S. Department of Defense. My current project is the excavation of the royal Danish flagship, Gribshunden, lost off Blekinge in 1495.
