Educational background
B.A. Archaeology (Hons.), Barnard College/Columbia University - 2009
M.Phil. Egyptology (Dist.), Clarendon Scholar, University of Oxford - 2012

Museum/research background
As an undergraduate, I interned with the Department of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Archaeology Department at the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Before starting my MPhil, I spent a year split between the registration department at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the Pleiades Project run by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at NYU.

Excavation background
I've excavated with the Megiddo Expedition at Tel Megiddo, Israel, since 2006, where I am the registrar for an Iron Age section of the site. I have also spent two seasons with the Jezreel Valley Regional Project (also in Israel, right next to Megiddo); three with the Amheida Project in the Dakhleh Oasis, Egypt; and two with the Athienou Archaeological Project in Athienou-Malloura, Cyprus.

What's new
My undergrad thesis focused on modern viewership of Graeco-Roman mummy portraiture from Egypt. I'm still interested in this topic, but while at Oxford I worked on a very different group of objects: Late Period sacred animal "reliquaries" (little bronze boxes with bits of sacred animal mummies inside). In general, I am keen to do object-based studies. I am also hoping to turn my MPhil dissertation into an article in the near future. My other interests include archaeometry, depictions of the human physiognomy in ancient art, Egyptian cult practices, the "Late Ramesside Letters", and Coptic material.
