Biography

Many of my courses are focused upon the art, archaeology, culture, language and literature of Ancient Egypt. I also teach a number of courses on archaeology and archaeological methods, museum studies, anthropological and archaeological approaches to the study of death, ancient history and ancient women.

I have a background in ancient history and archaeology and my doctoral dissertation in Egyptian Art and Archaeology focused upon a stylistic and quantitative analysis of Late Eighteenth Dynasty Egyptian faience and glass from the palace site of Malqata. My current research interests include images of women and children from Ancient Egypt and the roles of the royal women during the Amarna Period. I believe that travel abroad is an important component of any undergraduate experience. In 2011 I led an archaeological tour of Egypt, exploring the monuments and museums from Aswan to Alexandria, and in 2012 I led a museum tour of London, Paris, and Berlin. 

The study of art and archaeology opens up the mind to new cultures and new ways of seeing and interpreting data. Students who learn to think creatively will be better prepared to succeed on any career path.
