Classical archaeologist studying cult places in the context of local and regional political developments, with a particular interest in the 1st millennium BCE central Mediterranean. I am currently working on the architectural and ritual development of the sanctuary of Fortuna and Mater Matuta in Rome’s Forum Boarium during the Middle Republic, based on my recently completed dissertation titled “The Roman Middle Republic at Sant’Omobono.”
I’m a PhD student at the University of Virginia with interests in Greek religion (and its reception by classical and post-classical writers), Greek linguistics, and the application of second language acquisition research to the teaching of Latin and ancient Greek. Before coming to UVA, I studied Classics at the University of Kentucky and language teaching at the University of Illinois. In the summers, I’ve taught intensive Greek courses for the Polis Institute in Rome and Florida.
I am an art historian specialising in the art, patronage and urbanism of Rome in the seventeenth century. My project for the ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions was on the sensory and emotional reception of baroque religious painting and sculpture but morphed into a study of the rosary from the perspective of the senses. I am also interested in relics, particularly false relics, and the relationship between the Catholic church and antiquarian studies in the seventeenth century. My other major research interest is landscape painting, specifically Claude Lorrain and the ecology of the Roman Campagna in the early modern period.
