I completed my undergraduate degree at Trent University, Canada, and I earned my doctorate in Classical Art and Archaeology at the University of Michigan. My research investigates the connections between mobility, identity, and intercultural contact in Anatolia and the Aegean from the Late Bronze Age through the Early Iron Age. I have conducted fieldwork in Turkey, Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, and the Republic of Georgia. I was a fellow at the American School of Classical Studies during 2012-2013 and at the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations in Istanbul during 2015-2016.


My research interests include:

• Late Bronze and Early Iron Ages in western Anatolia
• Archaeological approaches to mobility
• State formation in Aegean and Anatolia
• Late Bronze Age earthen architecture in the eastern Mediterranean
• Iron Age interaction in ancient Colchis

Current research projects:

• Kaymakçı Archaeological Project (Turkey): study of earthen architecture
• Vani Archaeological Project (Georgia): study of Early Iron Age processes at Shuamta
