Limited Term Assistant Professor in Greek and Roman Studies, University of Victoria

My research situates study of ceramic production, exchange, and consumption within larger discussion of social, religious, and economic exchange and transformation. Geographically, I specialize in the archaeology of Greece during the period from the 12th-7th centuries BCE. I am currently involved in the study and publication of archaeological material from the ancient sites of Methone and Eleon, where I have worked for the last thirteen years.

Since 2017, I have been restudying a large assemblage of archaeological finds from the Mycenaean Fountain on the north slope of the Athenian acropolis. In 2018, this project was awarded the Michael Ventris Memorial Award for Mycenaean Studies. I am currently preparing a final publication of the material, part of a larger monograph on post-palatial Athens and Attica "Post-Palatial Athens: Technological Innovations and Social Transformations". This project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Loeb Classical Library Foundation.

My research has appeared in the Annual of the British School at Athens, the American Journal of Archaeology, and the Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology.
