In October 2016 I was appointed Director of the Robert Anderson Research Charitable Trust (with effect from March 2017 until which time I will be ‘Director designate’), a charity that offers postgraduate students and visiting academic staff accommodation and financial support for short periods of intensive research in London.
In 2015 I was elected President of the International Association of Egyptologists (IAE) which unites the efforts of persons, scholars and supporters, willing to work within its frame for the promotion of Egyptology.
Previously, I was Director (CEO) of the Egypt Exploration Society from January 2012 to October 2016. I had worked for the organisation in various capacities since 2001, and altogether spent almost 16 years there – almost my entire working life to that point! – before eventually leaving to concentrate on my freelance work.
