Associate Prof Ross

Associate Prof Shawn Ross - eResearch Workflows

Trained as an historian, Shawn also has over 20 years of fieldwork experience in archaeology, including excavation, pedestrian survey, satellite remote sensing, ceramics processing, technical photography, and data management. Shawn has also directed the Federated Archaeological Information Management Systems (FAIMS) project, which is building information technology infrastructure for archaeology and other fieldwork-based disciplines. FAIMS has led to the development of a new research direction, examining the impact of digital technologies on archaeological research and developing approaches to building robust digital infrastructure in 'small' disciplines like archaeology.
