Current Research

Nathalie’s PhD research studies the rock art of the Jebel Qurma region in Jordan’s Black Desert. It focusses on the nature of the rock art, including how it was made, and the relationship between the rock art and the natural and anthropogenic features in the landscape.

Nathalie is one of three PhD candidates in the NWO-sponsored research project ‘Landscapes of Survival: Pastoralist Societies, Rock Art and Literacy in Jordan’s Black Desert, c. 1000 BC – 500 AD’.
