As the Program Coordinator for the Department of History, I work closely with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Director of Graduate Studies in order to facilitate the orderly functioning of our degree programs. I help oversee departmental scheduling and course enrollments as Undergraduate Coordinator. As Graduate Coordinator I assist our graduate students administratively and serve as a point of contact for them within the Department.
As an Adjunct Instructor, I am a historian of the ancient Greco-Roman Mediterranean, with a particular focus on the Roman Republic. My academic specialization is ancient slavery and slave rebellion. As a historian I am particularly interested in social class and the contested nature of wealth/wealth distribution in ancient societies. Additionally, I have a strong interest in military history, particularly pre-modern military history, and the history of violence. Examples of courses I have recently taught:
- History 205 "Introduction to Roman History"
- History 301 "Introduction to the Study of History"
- History 315 "US Military History"
- History 404A "History of the Roman Republic"
