Research Interests

I am a Masters student in sociocultural anthropology and archaeology. My Masters research deals with Soviet-era landscape transformation and its relation to the connection between memory and the material traces of the past in the Republic of Georgia. My research adresses questions of the processes of knowledge and meaning production that surround archaeology, memory, cultural heritage, landscape, space and place, anthropological and archaeological ways of knowing, and the ethical implications of our methodologies.  

I completed my joint BA at the University of Chicago in Anthropology and Geographical Studies in 2017, and spent the year after continuing my research as a Heritage Analyst for the Afghan Heritage Mapping Partnership at the Center for Ancient Middle Eastern Landscapes (CAMEL) at the Oriental Institute, using GIS and satellite imagery to survey and map archaeological heritage in Afghanistan. I have worked on field projects in Scotland, Azerbaijan, and the Republic of Georgia.
