Varying from field and lab experience to web development, my projects focus on ways to improve my archaeological, technical, and leadership skills.
I created a website for a collection of archaeological Greek and Roman oil lamps and vessels. I handled, photographed, and researched the lamps and vessels. I am currently working on creating a digital collection of Native American vessels.
As a way to make archaeological research and questions engaging for the general public, I created a youtube video that explores Anglo-Saxon Mortuary Archaeology.
I worked with Dr. Jeb Card in lab sessions by answering questions, instructing students, and assisting with lab procedures. I collaborated with Dr. Card to create a research design lab exercise that was completed by students at the end of the semester. I independently ran a lab session focusing on arrowhead classification.
As a lab assistant, I worked with forensic archaeological collections, handled artifact collections, and wrote posts for the Department of Archaeology blog. I also presented "The Hahn Archaeological Site" to local community members.
As a field intern with the Cincinnati Museum Center, I worked on a prehistoric middle Fort Ancient site that spans the Anderson and Madisonville phases. I worked with local community members, and worked in the field and lab.
As a field student with L.E.A.P., I worked on a Lucayan domestic site under the direction of Dr. Perry Gnivecki, Miami University, on San Salvador Island in The Bahamas. We focused on the late pre-colonial period.
I planned events including a graduate school panel, archaeology day, career fair preparation day, guest speakers and faculty research presentations. I began an initiative to highlight club members’ research and activities. We saw an increase in club membership and participation.
