I received my PhD (2011) and MA (2006) in Classics with a specialization in Mediterranean Archaeology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. I also attended the University of Toronto where I completed an Honours BA in Classics and Archaeology in 2004.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was the Crake Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Classics at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. I also spent two years studying in Athens, Greece, at the American School of Classical Studies — first as the John Williams White Fellow and then as the Edward Capps Fellow.
My research focuses on the study of the Roman economy, particularly in the eastern half of the Mediterranean Sea. I primarily work with ancient ceramics to document trade patterns and economic connections between different regions and to assess the stimuli behind these networks.
Currently I am involved with two archaeological projects in Greece. The first is the Western Argolid Regional Project (WARP) for which I serve as co-director. The second is the Sikyon Excavation Project for which I am the Roman pottery specialist.
I will be organizing an archaeological field school through the Western Argolid Regional Project to be held during the summer of 2015. General information about the project can be found at www.westernargolid.org.
In the near future I aim to have research opportunities for undergraduate students to work with data collected from my archaeological projects.
