I am an anthropologist and science communicator, with a research program in Roman bioarchaeology and with an outreach portfolio that includes writing for Forbes and Mental Floss, giving public talks, and providing expert opinions on news related to anthropological topics.
My educational background includes a PhD in anthropology (UNC Chapel Hill), MA degrees in anthropology (ECU) and classical archaeology (UNC Chapel Hill), and BA degrees in classical archaeology and Latin (UVa).
I am currently a research scholar at the Ronin Institute and, starting fall 2018, a lecturer in anthropology at UNC Chapel Hill.
