Personal Statement:

I am a historian of the late ancient Mediterranean. After earning a B.A. in Medieval History, I turned things Byzantine and earned an M.A. in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies from King’s College London. My research interests broadly embrace topics pertaining to the history of philosophy, spirituality, and culture in the Mediterranean and Middle East from the 2nd – 7th centuries CE. In particular I am interested in the various numinous materialities experienced by late ancient Romans
