After running from pre-med I eventually found my way to earn a BA in Anthropology and a BA in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2016. Now as an archaeologist I specialize in how magnetism can be used to answer anthropological and archaeological questions; a field we call archaeomagnetism. You can almost always find me in Yale’s archaeomagnetic lab in the basement of 51 Hillhouse where we have all the necessary equipment to characterize and identify even microscopic magnetic components. The major application on which I am focusing now is the development of archaeomagnetism as both an absolute and relative dating technique. Furthermore, I have a strong interest in developing as many different applications as possible— if you have anything that comes out of the ground, there is a chance archaeomagnetic methods apply. Currently, I hope to refine and expand the archaeomagnetic dating curves for Peru, offering a totally independent method of absolute dating to an entire region.
