What have you been doing since you’ve graduated?
I attended graduate school at UCLA, where I recieved my PhD in Archaeology. After graduate school, I was a visiting research scholar at the Institute of the Study of the Ancient World at NYU. At the time of writing this, I am the Hirsch Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens.
How did your experience in the program shape your professional and personal life?
Studying both the methodology and the theory behind archaeology made me think about how humans interact with the world in completely new ways. I made great friends in the archaeology program, and I felt like I learned how to do rewarding research. As a result of my time in the archaeology program, I am continuing to work and conduct research in the field.
What interactions with members of the Archaeology faculty did you value most during your time in the program?
I learned so much from Mac Marston, Andrea Berlin, and Chris Roosevelt during my time at BU (and in the years after!). Not only did I gain insight into archaeological field work, science, and Mediterranean/Anatolian archaeology, but I also learned how about how really wonderful scholars approach mentorship and academia.
If you could give a piece of advice to your past self, what would it be?
Work hard, but not too hard! Take more notes than you think you need. Keep your citation manager neat and up to date.Always write thank you emails, and do it quickly.If you’re going to submit something, read it over one more time.Have multiple back ups!
