Affiliations: I received my MA from Florida State University in Classical Archaeology in 2013, and am currently pursuing my PhD in Classical Archaeology, also at Florida State University. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Background: Originally from Marietta, Georgia, I completed my undergraduate education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009. It was at UNC where I developed an interest in Roman archaeology and architecture (and NCAA basketball). In 2011, I completed an MPhil in Archaeological Heritage and Museum Studies at the University of Cambridge where my dissertation work focused on differences between grassroots and the National Park Service's representations of Civil War battlefields. In 2011, my interest in the ancient world was revived and since I have been interested not only with the excavation of the past, but also the ways in which the ancient world is exhibited, particularly in museums. I have worked on archaeological excavations at several sites in Italy, namely a Roman bath house at Carsulae, in Umbria, (2007) and the town of Gabii, near Rome (2009; 2010; 2012). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Current Research Interests: My primary research interests involve architecture of public spaces in Republican and Imperial Italy, particularly baths. I am very interested in the hydraulics of these spaces and the engineering of the different rooms.
