Anna is a research fellow at St John's College and the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, and an associate investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage. Her PhD in Archaeology, recently completed at the University of Queensland, focused on the use of food plants and long-term human-environment interaction at the oldest known archaeological site in Australia, Madjedbebe, Mirarr Country, Northern Territory. Her current research focuses on the role of plant foods in early human migrations, and the complexity of long-term human-plant interactions within Indigenous communities in Australia, New Guinea and Island Southeast Asia.
