Lecturer, Department of Classical Studies, Dartmouth College
I'm a Classical archaeologist. My research focuses on the topic of food in ancient Greece. In fact, I mostly study food trash in the form of animal bones. These humble remains tell us of everyday meals, elaborate feasts, and how humans interacted with the environment around them. While I'm usually found in a classroom, laboratory, or library, I'm a dirt archaeologist at heart. I've excavated at a wide range of sites from Paleolithic caves and Neolithic villages to Bronze Age palaces and Greek and Roman cities. Currently, I'm co-Field Director of the Histria Multiscalar Archaeological Project in Romania and collaborating as zooarchaeologist for several ongoing excavation and study projects in Greece (Azoria, Gourimadi, Lechaion, Phaleron).
