Hi, my name is Alex Fitzpatrick! I’m a zooarchaeologist and PhD candidate at the University of Bradford in England.
I received my BA in Classical Archaeology, Anthropology, and Special Honours from CUNY Hunter College in New York in 2015.
In 2016, I received my MSc in Archaeological Sciences from the University of Bradford. My dissertation was titled Fishing, Diet, and Environment in the Iron Age of the Northern Isles.
I run the social media for Crastina, an international website for promoting science communication. I also write a bi-monthly article for Her STEM Story called #STEMSupport. I’m currently a volunteer STEM Ambassador for STEM Learning UK.
My current research involves analysis of the taphonomic characteristics of faunal assemblages from the Covesea Caves in north-east Scotland.
