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 of politics, religion, and culture in the imperial Roman and early Byzantine worlds from the 2nd-7th centuries CE.
I explore the complex of questions surrounding communal violence — persecutions in particular — at the end of the ancient Mediterranean world. I’m currently researching the significance of space and objects in religious violence during the fourth and fifth centuries CE.
