Research Interests & Fieldwork

I am interested in exploring how people responded to and lived through times of crisis, turmoil, and instability, particularly during the Bronze Age-Iron Age transition in the Eastern Mediterranean region. I hope to further interrogate what happened after the end of the Bronze Age, the endurance of cultures despite rises and falls, and the dynamic relationship between people, plants, and their environment.
