  • Magdalene College

I grew up in New England and after a ten-year break from my education, attended the University of Southern Maine (USM) where I studied Geography-Anthropology with a focus in archaeology. It was during my time at USM that I developed a passion for indigenous rights advocacy and the role that archaeology can play in helping to transform the world. After I earned my bachelors degree, I moved on to pursue a masters in Landscape Archaeology at the National University of Ireland Galway. My PhD at Cambridge focuses on the Nuraghe of Sardinia and the role that these monumental structures have played throughout time. As a Gates Cambridge recipient I am honoured to join a community of like-minded scholars who are committed to making a difference in their fields and the world.
