    Dr John McCarthy is a DECRA Fellow and Lecturer in maritime archaeology at Flinders University. His research focuses on digital innovation in archaeological methodology, submerged archaeological landscapes, and in European merchant vessels of the Early Modern period. Dr McCarthy is a Scientific Diver and has led surveys of numerous shipwrecks dating from the 17th century onwards, and has been heavily involved in submerged landscape archaeology, working on submerged ancient sites in the North Sea, the Baltic, the Levant and Australia. Dr McCarthy was part of the team that located and surveyed Australia's first sub-tidal Aboriginal archaeological site in 2020.

    His specialist area of research focuses on Digital Maritime archaeology. John has led a Springer volume on the subject (https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-03635-5) and has written several papers on photogrammetry and on 3D modelling of ships from Iceland to Australia (see  Google Scholar profile for a complete list of his publications: https://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=UvAdH0oAAAAJ&hl=en)

    McCarthy also works on Virtual Reality, his projects include a virtual ship model library https://youtu.be/stYskDSN0Mw and a virtual dive to a submarine https://youtu.be/mHlySgpCEso – both meet very well with current approaches which we pursue in the German Maritime Museum's Digitality Department.
