I am a field archaeologist and art historian cross appointed between the Departments of Humanities and Archaeology. My work is inherently multidisciplinary, intersecting the fields of Late Antique Studies, Archaeology, Religious Studies, Art History, Papyrology, and Gender Studies. At present, my research is largely situated in the field of Marian studies, specifically the ways in which we can use material culture to understand the development and spread of the early cult of the Virgin Mary. More broadly, I am also interested in the ways in which art and space interact within Late-Antique Christianity religious structures and the manner in which art is used by socially-marginalized populations to exert agency. My research is also grounded in the Digital Humanities and Public Scholarship, as a founding member of the Digital Mary Project (an open-access collection of material culture related to the Virgin Mary in the Eastern Mediterannean) and Peopling the Past (A Digital Humanities initiative that produces and hosts free, open-access resources for teaching and learning about real people in the ancient world).
