In October 2016 I was appointed Director of the Robert Anderson Research Charitable Trust, a charity that offers postgraduate students and visiting academic staff accommodation and financial support for short periods of intensive research in London.
Finally, I’m also a postgraduate mentor for the University of Birmingham (see here).
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. I was also elected President of the International Association of Egyptologists (IAE) in 2015, a position I held for four years stepping down in 2019.
