Research project

Post-Medieval Poverty: an Integrated Investigation funded by The Wellcome Trust



Keri has a BSc in Archaeology and an MSc in Bioarchaeology from the University of York. Her masters research investigated the potential for rapid screening with protein mass-spectrometry to identify scorbutic markers in infants from a poor post Medieval population in Norwich. 

After a period working in the Dental School at the University of Sheffield, Keri took up the position of research technician on the ‘CodeX’ project, ‘Decoding domesticate DNA in archaeological bone and manuscripts’, working with Professor Matthew Collins.  Keri’s role was to conduct the ZooMS analyses for this project - a method to identify the animal origin of bones and other collagenous materials using soft-ionization mass-spectrometry.
