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.

Fields of Research

Coffins, Egyptian religion, magic, and funerary customs and rituals, epigraphy, and material culture associated with religion and mortuary practice, application of 3D/ digital technologies to the field of Egyptology
