I am a first year PhD student in the Archaeology track. My general research interests include historical archaeology, economic anthropology, critical geography, gender studies, and postcolonial theory. Specifically, I am interested in how placed based, household, and community economies support projects of alternative political and economic activism and represent spaces of contestation. Prior to studying at Stanford, I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2010 with an MA in Anthropology and a BA in Philosophy and Art History. I have conducted archaeological fieldwork in Greece, Albania, Arizona, and New Mexico.
