Hello, and welcome to my website.
I am a graduate student in the Nautical Archaeology Progam in Texas A&M's Department of Anthropology in College Station, Texas. My thesis work focuses on the rigging and associated equipment from ancient ships (Bronze Age through the Roman Empire), such as blocks, deadeyes, brails, toggles, etc. Outside my thesis, my research interests range greatly, and I am particularly interested in the application of 3D modeling in archaeology, which is reflected in my portfolio page.
I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology and Classical studies in 2007. During my undergraduate career, I participated in archaeological projects in Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Greece. As a graduate student at Texas A&M, I've had the opportunity to participate in the excavation and study of Byzantine shipwrecks from the former Theodosian Harbour of Constaninople at Yenikapı in Istanbul, as well as the 50th anniversary excavation of the Bronze Age shipwreck at Cape Gelidonya, Turkey.
