2002-2006 Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
B.A. Cum Laude, Anthropology)
Subfield: Bioarchaeology, Phaoronic Egypt, Gender Construction, Embodiment, Identity Construction, Disability Studies
Research Interest: From 2008-2010, I have lead the Karanis Cemetery Survey Project. This mission is focused around properly documenting the surface skeletal material and architecture for the cemetery of Karanis, a Greco-Roman town in Egypt's Fayum region. During this time, I have also done research combining bioarchaeological data with art historical in order to understand patterns of gender construction in different periods of pharaonic Egypt, specifically the 5th and 6th dynasties and Amarna Period. For my dissertation, I will use similar theoretical constructs surrounding the interrelationship between identity and the body in order to better understand the role of disability in ancient Egypt.
