Anthony’s current research interests include the development of spatial data infrastructure for the reuse of spatial archaeology data and the use of multiscale remote sensing techniques in cultural heritage with particular focus on the monitoring and prospection of archaeology and monuments. The application of Machine Learning Models in cultural heritage is another area of interest, as is the development of standards and methods for the long term management and FAIR reuse of archaeological data.
