I am a PhD Candidate (ABD) in Art History from Indiana University, Bloomington. My research focuses on the Roman monumental arch — one of the most popular and enduring monumental forms from antiquity. I am primarily interested in understanding how these monuments were reflections of identity and locality broadly speaking–not just symbols of imperial authority inherently tied to the city of Rome. My PhD research has taken me all over Italy, France, and Croatia in 2015 and 2017. In Spring of 2018, I will return to Italy and France, as well as other sites in Western Europe.
