Mediterranean maritime archaeology, ceramics, materiality, Levantine archaeology, historiography

I am a PhD student in Classical Archaeology with interests in Mediterranean maritime archaeology, ceramics, materiality, economic history and historiography. I am particularly interested in Mediterranean mobility and exchange and the intersection of politics, society and material in the Hellenistic and early Roman eastern Mediterranean. 

I have authored forthcoming chapters on the Hellenistic and Roman ceramics from the submerged harbor at Akko and the ancient city of Daphne, a suburb of Antioch-on-the-Orontes. I also serve as the assistant editor of The Levantine Ceramics Project, an open-source database for the publication of ceramic data from the Mediterranean. I have conducted fieldwork at a variety of terrestrial and underwater sites in Israel including Tel Dor and Caesarea Maritima and in 2022 joined Project U’Mari, a collaborative project that explores the ancient and contemporary maritime heritage of Southeastern Sicily.
