CDH recruits new research engineer

Four questions for Ashely Green, newly employed research engineer at the Centre for Digital Humanities.

Can you tell us a little bit about your background and previous work?
I received my MSc in Forensic Archaeology, and more recently my PhD in Archaeology, from Bournemouth University in the UK. My PhD research looked at the viability of using machine learning to help identify graves in ground-penetrating radar data, for both archaeological and forensic purposes. 

Outside of academia, I volunteered with local community groups to guide them in geophysical survey of potential heritage sites.  Since earning my master’s degree, I have primarily worked in commercial archaeogeophysics in the UK and assisted on survey projects from Ireland to Southeast Asia.

What is your role within the Centre for Digital Humanities?
I am a research engineer assisting with AI and GIS projects.

What projects are you involved in at the moment?
I largely work on the Rock Art in Three Dimensions project, using deep learning to document rock art on the panels.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have only recently moved to Sweden so my focus is on re-establishing a garden – with plenty of basil and lettuce to go around!
