I am a PhD student in Classics and Archaeological Studies, studying Roman urbanism and ancient religions through acoustics at University of Kent. Prior to starting my PhD, I took an MA in Biblical Studies at the Graduate Theological Union and an MA in Classical Art and Archaeology at King’s College, London and a BA in Religious Studies with a minor in Music from University of California, Chico.

My project uses acoustics and architecture to explore the ways Ostia Antica was experienced and perceived by residents and visitors. I draw on contemporary studies of sounds, soundscapes, as well as urban and spatial analyses along with traditional archaeological and ancient history methods in answering these questions.

This blog is mostly a space for updates to my work and similar projects on historical sound studies and sensory experience in antiquity. I was part of the organising team that launched Sensory Studies in Antquity, an academic network and website promoting sensory studies in the diverse fields studying the ancient world.
