PhD Project:

My primary interests are concerned with the material culture of the Islamic world. I have
participated in archaeological field projects at medieval and Islamic sites in Egypt, Israel, Spain, and the West Bank. My current research focuses on the ceramics of medieval Aswan in order to investigate the development and daily life of Muslim and Christian communities at the edge of the Islamic world.
