I teach courses in ancient Greek, Roman, Mediterranean, and world history, including topics courses on ethnicity and race, sexuality, and democracy. My current research project explores the history of indigenous peoples in the Hellenistic world (323-30 BC), with a particular focus on the region of Anatolia/Asia Minor (modern Turkey). I seek to understand how these communities were able to maintain traditional practices and identities while interacting with and appropriating hegemonic Greek culture and power structures. My degrees include a B.A. in Ancient Mediterranean Civilizations (Rice University, 2003, where I also competed in Cross-Country and Track & Field) and a Ph.D. in Ancient History (University of Pennsylvania, 2010, where I briefly participated in a campus Shakespeare company). I have also studied abroad and conducted research in Greece (American School of Classical Studies in Athens), Turkey (American Research Institute), and Germany (Institute for Epigraphy and Ancient History).
