Nadhira received her BA in Classical Studies and Archaeology from Randolph-Macon College with honors, where her senior thesis focused on using mainstream philology and feminist theory to interpret a 5th century vase depicting Helen and Paris and point out its intertextuality with Iliad 3. She presented her thesis at the Virginia Undergraduate Research Symposium for Classics in November 2015. In 2014, 2015, and 2017, Nadhira worked as a volunteer at the Athenian Agora Excavations in Greece. Since 2017, Nadhira has worked on the Olynthos Project, where she has been a member of the pottery team for several seasons. Her research interests include the archaeology of ceramic production, drinking and dining culture, and domestic space in Classical Greece.
