Projects

My thesis revolves around an experimental archaeology project on the energetics of ashlar masonry at the LBA site of Kalavasos-Ayios Dhimitrios (K-AD) in Cyprus. There is a particular emphasis on building XVI at K-AD to unveil how such a structure is demonstrative of large political centres on the island at the time.

I completed a double major BA in Anthropology as well as Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology from the University of British Columbia in 2017. I am currently pursuing my MA in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology and am a teaching assistant for Greek and Roman Mythology. I also work as a field school supervisor for the Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environments (KAMBE) Project, an interdisciplinary investigation of the relationships between urban landscapes, social interaction, and social change on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age (or Late Cypriot period, c. 1650-1100 BCE).
