My research interests are in the interdisciplinary field of the Digital Humanities, and range from 3D models of archaeological objects to the publication of information as Linked Data. 

During my postdoc at the University of Oxford's e-Research Centre, I published (e.g. DH2016) on bibliographic metadata ontologies for ElEPHãT (Early English Print in HathiTrust: A Linked Semantic Worksets Prototype), and on research in Transforming Musicology (e.g. metaMUSAK). 

My earlier research, fully-funded by EPSRC through the Web Science Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Southampton, UK focused on the representation of Mesopotamian literary compositions using OWL ontologies. In between postgraduate degrees, I worked in the cultural heritage sector, such as the British Museum, the Egyptian Museum, and Visavuori Museum.

In 2016, I was selected a Sustainable Software Institute Fellow.
