I am currently a PhD student in the Nautical Archaeology Program of the Department of Anthropology at Texas A&M University and a Texas A&M Association of Former Students Fellow (2020-2025).
I am a public archaeologist and historian broadly researching the practice and politics of heritage conservation. I currently utilize this framework to study Early Modern European imperialism and West African maritime cultural landscapes.
I hold an M.A. in Public History from Duquesne University (2020) and a B.A. in History from Grove City College (2018). Over the past four years, I have consulted in archaeological conservation with Archeonauta; the Museo del Mar in Vigo, Spain; Pfaffmann + Associates; Centro di Conservazione Archaeologica; and Carnegie Museum of Natural History. I was also a 2018 NCAA DIII Scholar All-American in Swimming and am a PADI-certified SCUBA diver.
