My PhD research (since 2012) has focused on the interpretation of figurines of the late Iron Age in Israel, the Palestinian Territories and Jordan.
The Lautenschläger Expedition to Azekah
I have taken part so far in four seasons of excavation at Tel Azekah (2013-2016), and have been part of the staff of the excavation for the last three seasons: Area Supervisor in Area N (2016), and Assistant Area Supervisor (2014-2015) in the same area.
Ongoing research on the life and work of Fr Emmanuel Magri SJ, with a particular focus on his pioneering work in the field of Maltese archaeology. My research has so far been presented in some lectures, papers and book sections on Magri’s work. I have also curated an exhibition for Magri’s centenary in 2007, organised by Heritage Malta and the Maltese Jesuit Province.
