My research is comprised of an extensive study of non-royal coffins and identities of the coffin owners. I have previously worked on some wooden coffins from the Middle Kingdom and the Late Period stored at the museums, which had never been adequately studied. I am currently at the stage of completing the coursework at Harvard and have no on-going project, so I hope to explore potential research projects while I am in Berlin as an exchange student at the BerGSAS.
