PhD student

Alexandra Warminski is a doctoral student in the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter and is a member of the Centre for Islamic Archaeology. Her doctoral research is part of the Digital Archive of the Middle East (DAME) project where she studies twentieth century colonial historical maps from the Arab World Documentation Unit (AWDU) and how the digitisation of these maps, along with employing digital methodologies, can aid in understanding the archaeological and cultural information depicted on the maps.

She obtained her MPhil in Heritage Studies from the University of Cambridge in 2021 focusing on the digital heritage of Syrian archaeological and cultural sites and previously received her BA in Anthropology, with a minor in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, from the University of Chicago in 2019.

Her research is supervised by Prof. Timothy Insoll and Prof. Leif Isaksen.
