Biography

I completed my B.A. Honours at Adelphi University with a specialist in Anthropology and minor in Forensic Anthropology. I continued my studies at the University College London where I completed a Master of Arts (MA) in Public Archaeology under Dr. Gabriel Moshenska. My thesis focused on the public perception of heritage sites in Malta that were bombed during the Second World War. As part of this study, I examined aspects of commemoration, memorialization and how changes in national identify shifts public opinion on sites of cultural importance. 

My current PhD continues to focus on aspects of memory and commemoration falling within the field of conflict anthropology/archaeology and the study of memory. I will be looking at German Prisoner of War camps in Canada using a combination of tangible and intangible heritage to understand what life was like for German Prisoners.
