IPCAA Graduate Student
Alex earned a BA in Ancient History with High Honors from Swarthmore College in 2015. His research there focused on modeling processes of cultural contact at the Greek site of Sybaris. In 2017, Alex received his MA in Classical Languages (Greek and Latin emphases) at the University of Georgia. His master's thesis considered Herodotus's Histories and focused on the role of colonial narratives in blurring distinctions between Greek and non-Greek identities. Alex has also participated in the Azoria Project in Crete and the Western Argolid Regional Project. Since 2016, he has excavated at Morgantina with the Contrada Agnese Project, mostly recently serving as an assistant supervisor. Alex's research investigates economic exchange, migration, and transitions in cultural identity at the periphery of the Iron Age Greek world.
