I am a bioarchaeologist and PhD candidate at The Ohio State University. Every summer I have worked on an archaeology site in Ireland since 2010. I earned two bachelor's degrees at OSU in 2013, one in Anthropology with research distinction, and the other in International Studies. In 2015 I earned my MSc. in Osteology and Paleopathology from the University of Bradford, UK. When I'm not excavating in Ireland, I am at home in the US mentoring undergraduate students and guiding them through their own independent research projects. My research interests include dental anthropology, bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, and education pedagogy. I hope to be a professor so that I can continue to help young women and other underrepresented groups in academia follow their dreams, like my advisor has done for me.
