About Me

I began my career in Classics as an undergraduate at Bryn Mawr College, where I divided my time between my Classical Languages degree during the school year, and various archaeological excavations and research fellowships in Rome during the summer. This time in Rome, and especially my experience studying in the city for a semester, led me to my twin interests for the comparative urban development of Rome and the reception of Augustus during the Fascist period. I pursued the latter topic, along with the relationship between literature and monumental architecture, for my undergraduate thesis (entitled “Romanitas/Romanità: The Parallel Representations of Roman History in Augustan and Fascist Cultural Works”). After taking some time to focus on the Augustan period alone for my Master’s degree at UCLA, I have returned to Classical reception and comparative history for my PhD dissertation.

I currently live in Los Angeles, California.
