Personal Statement:

I am a historian of the Late Antique Eastern Mediterranean. After earning a B.A. in History at Cornell College I turned things Byzantine and earned an M.A. in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies from King’s College London. My research embraces a variety of topics regarding religion, politics, and intellectual culture in the Roman Empire from the 4th to the 8th centuries CE. In particular my research attempts to identify instances of violence in the Late Roman world and synthesize that violence’s contemporary reception and causes.
