I am pursuing my PhD in Religions of Mediterranean Antiquity at Princeton under Prof. AnneMarie Luijendijk. My recent projects included an analysis of Procopius’ overlapping conceptions of Arian Christians and barbarians, a critical analysis of the alleged destruction of the Asklepieion in Aigai, Cilicia, by the Emperor Justinian, and a rhetorical commentary on Symmachus’ Third Relatio. I am also interested in papyrology, and have worked as a researcher for the Ancient Lives program jointly housed by the University of Minnesota and Oxford University.
I graduated from Macalester College in 2012 with a B.A. in Classics before obtaining a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate from the University of Pennsylvania in 2014, where I studied Latin and Greek. In between these programs, I worked with students with disabilities at Nova Classical Academy, a charter classical school in Saint Paul, MN.
