About

As an undergraduate student, I was a history major and spent the majority of my time researching Medieval Europe and Byzantium. I completed the undergraduate thesis which I titled, "The Translation of Saints and their Relics into and out of the Byzantine Empire" in which I looked at the movement of saints and their relics in Byzantium under the supervision of Professor Richard Greenfield. I was also involved with the History Department Student Council as a writer and manager for The Watson Blog. As a graduate student, I will be looking at the history of Medieval Russia (aka Kievan Rus) under the supervision of Professor Ana Siljak.
