Kathleen is a Classical Archaeologist who has worked on sites in Italy, Greece, Albania, and Turkey.  In particular, she is a ceramic specialist interested in Athenian figured wares from archaeological contexts. Her research currently spans a number of ceramic related topics from issues of Attic chronology to iconography to symposia to the Greek household. In addition, her research considers the role trade played in shaping Attic potters’ and painters’ outputs. In general, the goal of Kathleen’s research is to place material culture back into its context of use in order to understand better the people who used the objects. She is currently publishing ceramic material from Troy, Gordion, and the excavations of the Athenian Agora.

Kathleen's book, The Symposium in Context, ASCSA Publications, won the 2013 AIA Wiseman Award for best book in archaeology. She won the 2014 UC Dolly A.B. Cohen Award for excellence in teaching, and the Provost's Award for faculty excellence in 2016.

When she isn’t poring over pottery, she enjoys knitting and gardening.
