Hi everyone! My name is Maddie and I'm a senior studying Social Anthropology & Archaeology with a secondary in History. I grew up in Virginia, but am currently residing in Cabot House aka the best house on campus! Outside of school, I am part of Harvard Women's Swim & Dive, Harvard's mental health magazine (Under the Surface), ECHO peer counseling, Harvard College Conservation Society, and PBHA's Best Buddies chapter. I am a Quad enthusiast, mental health advocate, and enjoy writing, photography/film, hanging out with teammates, and anything by The Lumineers. My immersion in anthropology and archaeology classes led by amazing professors the past three years has not only changed the trajectory of my undergraduate path at Harvard, but also broadened my perspective on the two fields of study. 

Research Interests
