About Me

I recently completed my Ph.D. at the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University, where I wrote a dissertation on network dynamics in the Euboean Gulf in the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age. Originally from Minnesota, I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I studied Anthropology and Classics, and received my B.A. in the Spring of 2007. I have also spent time at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 2006 for a Summer Session and in 2010-2011 as a Regular Member. I have done fieldwork in Portugal, the United States, and Guatemala, though most of my work has been in Greece and in Jordan, where I currently serve as field director of the Brown University Petra Archaeological Project. My research is concerned with multi-scalar, diachronic approaches to archaeologies of landscape and interaction, set on the one hand in the quintessentially Mediterranean landscapes of the Aegean (especially the Euboean Gulf and regions surrounding it), and on the other the more arid landscapes of southern Jordan. I am particularly interested in Mediterranean prehistory and early history, technological change (namely the inception and development of iron metallurgy), networks, urbanism, the archaeology of regions, and comparative approaches to complex societies. These all fall within much wider interests in archaeological theory, ethics, historiography, and world archaeology.

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Getty Research Institute as part of the 2013/2014 Visiting Scholars Program on connecting seas. While at the Getty I am pursuing a project on inter-cultural engagements with craft production, consumption, and visual culture related to seafaring in the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age Mediterranean.
