About Me

I am a current graduate student at Tufts University, pursuing a Master’s degree in Classical Archaeology.  I graduated Beloit College May 2012 with a B.A. in Anthropology and Classical Civilizations, with a minor in Museum Studies.  Currently, I am master’s candidate in Classical Archaeology, also at Tufts.

Additionally, I work at the Boston Children’s Museum as a Visitor Experience Associate, and as a freelance curator and installer at SOWA Artist Studios in South Boston.

In the Summer of 2013, I interned at the Medford Historical Society, working with their collection of Civil War artifacts (see above photo).  My eventual goal is to become a curator or collections manager of a Near Eastern/Classics collection of a museum, with a focus on Ancient Egyptian antiquities.  My main interest with Ancient Egypt is in the intersect of archaeology and writing.  I am especially intrigued at how changes in religion over its 3000 year history influenced changes in monumental architecture. I am also interested at the power of the written word in Ancient Egypt, a mindset which has carried through to today.
