As an archaeologist, I am interested in issues of social transformation, kinship, and burial practices during early Medieval Europe. I am also interested in the use of technologies such as photogrammetry, 3D printing, and augmented reality in archaeological research and outreach.

Primary Research Interests:

  • Kinship, migration and social hierarchies
  • Social transformation and ethnogenesis
  • Mortuary archaeology
  • Isotopic studies
  • Early Medieval Period- continental Europe
  • Digital technologies such as photogrammetry, 3D scanning and modeling, virtual museum development

I am in the process of getting my master's degree in archaeology at the University of Cambridge, with a focus in archaeological science and the early medieval period. I am a member of St Catharine's College Cambridge.

I received my bachelor's degree from Miami University in 2017 with double majors in anthropology and interactive media studies, and double minors in archaeology and French.
