Dr John McCarthy a recent PhD graduate shares a recent little labour of love, a paper on Digital Restoration of High Crosses in Castledermot, undertaken as a cross-disciplinary collaboration with Flinders colleagues Erin Sebo and Brett Norsworthy.
It’s quite a visual project and a bit different to his usual research but based on a site near his home town in Ireland. View Here
John shares that he has been lucky to work closely with great supervisors who understand the importance of finishing a PhD with as much momentum as possible and who have encouraged him to organise conferences, participate in side projects and to publish his own work as much as possible.
He is currently working on creating teaching materials for distance students in maritime archaeology, especially through 3D animations of common archaeological tasks.
Also John is working on publishing his thesis as a book and has just been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Dutch Embassy in Canberra towards Open Access publishing, so that the book will be free in digital form when it comes out.
