I am a doctoral candidate in Anthropology at Brown University. My dissertation deals with the representation and performance of inequality and hierarchy in periods of political disintegration, using the Maya Terminal Classic period as a test case. My other research interests include Maya and other Mesoamerican epigraphy; linguistic anthropology, including language and orthographic ideologies; and ceramic analysis and chronology. I work at El Zotz, Guatemala under Dr. Thomas Garrison (University of South Carolina) and am advised by Prof. Stephen Houston (Brown University).
