I am an archaeologist and Latinist with a particular interest in the archaeology and history of Ostia, which was Rome's closest harbor in antiquity. I have worked on the excavations of the ancient synagogue at Ostia since 2006, and I have served as Field Director for that project since 2011. My research and publications focus especially on the "archaeology of archaeology", that is, exploring the contexts and dates of materials and structures that were uncovered or excavated long ago, and which deserve reexamination.

My training in the field of Classics has been broadly eclectic. My B.A. is in Classical Philology (Bellingham, USA) where I trained intensively in the study of Latin and Greek, including conversational Latin (visne latine loqui?) and composition.

I studied Classics & Archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin. My M.A. focused on Linear B and Mycenaean Archaeology, and I worked for several seasons studying Mycenaean pottery at Iklaina. For my Ph.D. coursework and field specializations I focused on archaeological method and theory and Attic and Roman pottery.

At the University of Sydney (Australia) I completed a Ph.D. thesis on the landscapes Republican Ostia.
