Research interests: 


Emily works on the Roman Empire with a particular interest on the south-western Mediterranean.  Her work focuses on cultural memory and the destruction of cities in the process of Roman expansion.  She is broadly interested in questions of diversity, ethnography, colonization, civic identity, and the interaction between localism and connectivity across the Mediterranean from the westward expansion of Phoenician and Greek colonies to Late Antiquity.
Her undergraduate thesis, Bishops, Martyrs, and Circumcellions: The Church in Conflict in fourth-century North Africa, earned her an honors distinction for her BA from Brown University and sparked a continued interest in ancient North Africa.
