I am an archaeologist specializing in mythology, collective identities, ancient numismatics, and religion in the Roman provinces. I earned a Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2016), following a M.A. at UNC Chapel Hill (2010), and an undergraduate degree from The George Washington University (2008; majors: classical humanities, archaeology, history). I have excavated across the Roman world, from England to Israel, most recently as a field and publication project member on the Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon (Israel). Beginning in 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor in Classical Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, teaching a variety of courses on ancient civilization, archaeology, mythology, and Latin!
