Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD (2011) and MA (2006) in Classics with a specialization in Mediterranean Archaeology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Prior to joining Laurier, I was the Crake Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Classics at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. I also spent two years studying in Athens, Greece, at the American School of Classical Studies — first as the John Williams White Fellow and then as the Edward Capps Fellow.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My research focuses on the study of the Roman economy, particularly in the eastern half of the Mediterranean Sea. I primarily work with ancient ceramics to document trade patterns and economic connections between different regions and to assess the stimuli behind these networks.
Currently I am involved with two archaeological projects in Greece. The first is the Western Argolid Regional Project (WARP) for which I serve as co-director. The second is the Sikyon Excavation Project for which I am the Roman pottery specialist.
