Research Description

As an archaeologist with field experience in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Cyprus, Tunisia and the U.S. and academic training in Egyptology, Syro-Palestinian Archaeology, Anthropology and Religious and Biblical Studies, I have strongly cross-cultural and interdisciplinary research interests. My current work focuses on fieldwork in Egypt, ancient Egyptian urbanism, cultural heritage destruction, and ancient ceramics.
