Elizabeth received a B.A. in Anthropology in 2004 from Barrett Honors College, Arizona State University, with an additional concentration in Classical Studies and a minor in Italian Language and Literature. Her M.A., obtained in 2007 from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, specialized in Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Her thesis entitled, “Speaking Volumes about Production: Innovative Approaches for the Study of Roman Table Wares,” attempted to study the question of relative production volume potential of Roman-period table ware production centers. Having acquired years of field work in Cyprus, England, and the American South-West, including a period as a salvage archaeologist, she now works with the Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) in Burdur Province, Turkey. At Sagalassos, she is currently studying ceramic material from the Potters’ Quarter of the ancient city in order to reconstruct production cycles and techniques, and the last two summers she continued excavations of a coroplast workshop. Her primary interests are in material studies, crafts production, transfer of technologies, ancient economy, interaction between crafts industries, and social roles of artisans during the Roman period.
