Student Year



I am a Junior studying Classics with a certificate in Archaeology. From my first few words in Latin in the 7th grade, I immediately fell in love with the language, its history, and its culture. I knew by the end of my first semester that iwI wanted to study Classics for the rest of my life. 

I am particularly interested in the study of spaces that have been neglected by the dominant literary sources. Past projects have included investigations of Roman fora in North Africa, as well as the environs of a Greek emporion in the North Aegean. I feel especially drawn to rural landscapes and agriculture in the Ancient World, as well as to the possibilities that computerized mapping systems like ArcGIS offer for future study. 

Outside of my Classics coursework, I research and catalogue Imperial Roman coins as a student assistant in the Firestone Library Numismatics Collection, as well as prepare for the annual Princeton Certamen as the current Classics Club co-President. I also manipulate spatial data and create maps for two archaeological projects, roles that allow me to further develop my skills in GIS and digital humanities research. After graduation, I intend to pursue a PhD in Classical Archaeology or a related field. Overall, I hope that my work can help spread enthusiasm and knowledge of the Classics to the public and researchers alike.
