Bio in Brief

Curriculum Vitae

I'm a Roman cultural historian with interests in identity, memory, authority, and violence. I am currently working on my dissertation, which examines the significance of spolia and exuviae in Roman culture.

Over the past three years I have taught extensively in Latin and Greek language, Greek and Roman history, and classical mythology, as well as an independently designed seminar on monuments and monumentality in the ancient world. I had the pleasure of advising an award-winning senior thesis last year and look forward to advising two more theses in 2014-2015.

In addition to teaching and advising, in 2013-2014 I held a year-long curatorial internship at the Harvard Art Museums, where I co-designed a digital hotspot (entitled "The Imperial Image") for the re-opening of the museums in the fall of 2014 and contributed to the forthcoming online catalogue of bronzes. My other cataloguing work includes all of the Roman Republican coins held by the Harvard Art Museums and the Republican and Augustan coins recovered through the excavations run by Princeton University at Antioch-on-the-Orontes in the 1930s.
