B.A. Archaeology (Hons.), Barnard College/Columbia University - 2009
M.Phil. Egyptology (Dist.), Clarendon Scholar, University of Oxford - 2012
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. At Brown, I have worked extensively with the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, where I co-curated my first exhibition, Uncovering Ancient Egypt: Ancient Crafts, Modern Technologies.
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 four seasons with the Jezreel Valley Regional Project (also in Israel, right next to Megiddo); four with the Amheida Project in the Dakhleh Oasis, Egypt; and two with the Athienou Archaeological Project in Athienou-Malloura, Cyprus.
I have just begun to write my dissertation, which is a pioneering study of Egyptian royal living-rock inscriptions from the perspective of landscape archaeology.
