Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a maritime archaeologist and current PhD student in the Department of Anthropology. I specialize on the use of 3D visualizations, based on gaming technology, as a tool for the enhancement and dissemination of maritime heritage. My research explores how the social, craft and biographical aspects of shipbuilding and the transportation of people can help us better understand the period of slavery and the transition to indenture. I am working on materials and shipwrecks from Mauritius, serving as an ideal case for Indian Ocean labor movements.
