Personal Statement:

I am a historian of the Late Antique Eastern Mediterranean. After earning a B.A. in History at Cornell College I turned things Byzantine and earned an M.A. in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies from King’s College London. My research embraces a variety of topics regarding religion, politics, and intellectual culture in the Roman Empire from the 3rd to the 7th centuries CE. In particular my research attempts to understand the creation and reception of imperial propaganda.
