Lucy Killoran is a PhD researcher in archaeology and computing science at the University of Glasgow and Historic Environment Scotland. Her research examines the integration of machine learning and computer vision for remote sensing data with workflows for large-scale archaeological survey. Her work uses qualitative methods to evaluate sociotechnical systems within archaeology and heritage management and work with stakeholders to design new human-AI workflows.

Research interests

Whilst at the Turing, Lucy's work will focus on the process of taking existing tools for archaeological survey automation from proof-of-concept to open source outputs. Her collaboration interests include designing reproducible and interoperable human-AI workflows, linking open source research outputs to successful stakeholder use, and building relationships between archaeology and data science.
