I am a bioarchaeologist, anthropological archaeologist, and Egyptologist. Broadly, my research interests center on bioarchaeology and Egyptian archaeology, and understanding the lived experiences of people in the past. 

I earned a Ph.D. in Archaeology from the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a B.A. and an M.A. in anthropological archaeology and forensic anthropology at the University of Montana, as well as a certificate in Egyptology from the University of Manchester.

I have conducted archaeological fieldwork in Egypt, Jordan, Peru, Ethiopia, Spain, and the western United States. I am currently the Head Osteologist for projects in Egypt and Jordan. Since 2022, I have been a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biological Anthropology at the University of California, Riverside.


My current research explores how ancient cultures define, understand, and enact violence within specific cultural and ideological parameters. I also study the history of cancer in human remains (Paleo-oncology), and health and disease in the past more broadly. My most recent research project explores player perceptions of gender in the Assassin's Creed video games set in the ancient world.
