Personal profile

Academic Biography

After completing a PhD on forensic and archaeological glass analyses, Becki worked as a post-doctoral researcher on several collaborative projects. While living in Belgium, she was a researcher on the ERC ARCHGLASS project investigating the origins of Roman glass production. During this time she specialised in the use of portable XRF, which led to her being involved as a consultant on external research projects. In particular, Becki developed field based approaches for using the pXRF to provenance various archaeological materials. This work led to Becki being asked to work on projects with Leiden University, The Netherlands, where she used pXRF to provenance 15th century Caribbean ceramic material.

After deciding to gain some industry based experience outside of acaedmia, Becki spent four years working in a commercial analytical services lab in Kent.
