UCL, project assistant 2019

Rory is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in international relations and organisations at Leiden University. Fundamental interests in Roman military power and tactics, especially in his Scottish homeland, and representational governance has led him to delve more deeply into modern politics in the UK and the Middle East. Rory’s participation in the CAAL project links his passion for international projects and history with the technical skills and discovery in remote sensing. He is looking at the Zarafshan Valley in Tajikistan, a region at the centre of several major empires. He is an avid car enthusiast, especially classic British brands of Aston Martin, Jaguar, and McLaren.
