Sarah graduated from Stanford Classics with a Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology in 2009. Her dissertation, Roman Provocations: Interactions with Decorated Spaces in Early Imperial Rome and Pompeii, proposed a new methodology for examining the ancient reception of Roman art and architecture that takes a viewer's gender, status, and audience into consideration. Her research interests include Roman art and architecture, Roman gender and sexuality, Latin epigraphy, and the reception of the Classical past. She has excavated on Crete, in the Roman Forum, and at Pompeii. After graduating, she spent two years (2010-2012) as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows in the Humanities Research Center at Rice University, followed by two years as an Assistant Professor of History at the University of San Diego. She is now an Assistant Professor of Classics at the University of Washington.
