Dr Leire Olabarria
Randall-MacIver Student in Egyptology/Archaeology
I am originally from Spain, where I studied for my undergraduate degree in History. In 2008 I came to Oxford to do an MPhil in Egyptology at Saint Cross College. I moved to Queen’s in 2010 to start a doctorate, which I submitted in October 2014. Since 2012 I have participated in the Dayr al-Barsha archaeological project in Middle Egypt. For the academic year 2015-16 I am a departmental lecturer in Egyptology to cover an absent member of permanent staff. I hold the Randall-MacIver Studentship in Archaeology at Queen’s.
