I'm a Black American woman finishing up my PhD studying the influence of ancient Egypt in Imperial Rome. I also work on Italian reception of ancient Egyptian and Egyptian-style material through the ages. I am an advocate for accessible archaeology and work a lot using 3D models to bring material culture to people who don't normally visit museum spaces. I am an adventurous foodie, and I have taken many courses such as cheesemaking and pig butchering and pasta making. I have theater training so I am an excellent public speaker and I am a regular guest lecturer at the high school and university level as well as to the general public.
