Co-founder and Coordinator, Birmingham East Mediterranean Archive, www.birminghameastmedarchive.com

Since 2015 I have worked with Dr Daniel Reynolds, University of Birmingham, to create an online archive for images of the archaeology, landscape and modern culture of the East Mediterranean, focusing on preserving digital copies of scholars’ archives. We have obtained external funding for hardware, permission to make available the archives of four major scholars in East Mediterranean studies, including from the universities of Birmingham and Oxford, and the School of Oriental and African Studies and a funded undergraduate internship working with the archive. The archive has been used in scholarly publications and as the basis for PhD research.
