About

I am a PhD student, trying to find a balance between archaeology and science. My research is on silver coins recovered from ships wrecked off the Western Australian coast. I use laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) to determine the elemental composition of the coins. In particular I’m looking for trace elements which are unique to when and where a coin was minted.
